A reports reaching us that Nnamdi Kanu Feared Dead, As DSS Fails To Produce Him in court

The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was failed to be provided in court by the Department of State Services, DSS, on Monday, before the Federal High Court in Abuja for the continuation of his trial.

When the case was called up around 11:09 am, Government lawyer, M. B. Abubakar, blamed Kanu’s absence in court on what he termed as “logistical problems”.

Abubakar, while acknowledging that the matter was slated for hearing, told the court that he was ready to proceed in Kanu’s absence, adding that he has three witnesses ready to testify.

The Prosecution however sought the court’s direction on whether the matter could go on, considering that the High Court has commenced its annual vacation.

He argued that it would be impossible to proceed with the case in the absence of a Fiat from the Chief Judge of the High Court.

On his part, Kanu’s lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor told the court that the life of his client was in danger.

Ejiofor told the court that he had been unable to have access to his client for the past 10 days.

“My lord, speaking from the Bar, I got it on good authority that my client has been taken away, outside the jurisdiction of this court”, Ejiofor added.

He equally argued that it would be in the interest of justice for the CJ of the court to issue Fiat for the trial to go on during the court’s vacation.

Meanwhile, trial Justice Binta Nyako noted that the case could not go on in the absence of the Defendant.

“I am also worried why the Defendant is not here. The first step in a criminals matter is to provide the Defendant in court. He is not here.

The judge also ordered that Kanu must be produced before the court on October 21 which is the next adjourned date for the matter.

After the court dismissed, his lawyer spoke to the media and told them that he had it in good authority that Nnamdi Kanu has been moved out of Abuja in questionable health that was caused by his torture in Kenya for eight days.

He made it clear that if anything happens to Nnamdi Kanu, the international community must hold the DSS and the Federal Government led by Major General Muhammed Muhammedu Retd. should be held responsible.

The lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, said he would make moves to see Nnamdi Kanu immediately.
