Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu is due to appear in court today to face the criminal charges of terrorism and treasonable felony slammed against him by the Federal Government.

Kanu was brought into the court premises in a convoy about 8 am and will appear before Justice Binta Nyako of the the federal high court in Abuja.

Ahead of the trial resumption, officers of the Nigerian Police Force and operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) were seen guarding every entrance to the court and the streets leading to the court building.

Some members of IPOB thronged the court premisies in show of support for Kanu but were not allowed into the court premises, and later dispersed.

In June, Nnamdi Kanu was arrested and extradited to Nigeria to face trial after jumping bail in 2017. He has since been remanded in DSS custody.
