How Nnamdi Kanu was blindfolded, handcuffed and sneaked into Abuja court


It has been revealed that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu was blindfolded and sneaked into the Federal High Court, Abuja by heavy security operatives.

According to Sahara Reporters, he was handcuffed while his legs were also chained.

He was hurriedly taken to Court 2 where the presiding judge told the prosecution lawyer, Shuaib Labaran to inform the defence counsel of the new date for the continuation of the trial.

Journalists were prevented from filming Kanu as he was shielded and taken through the back door.

The prosecution applied that Kanu jumped bail and wanted him to be remanded at DSS custody.

The court granted the application.

Justice Muritala Nyanko has adjourned the matter to July 26, 2021.

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), on Tuesday announced that Kanu was intercepted by operatives of Nigeria’s security intelligence.

Kanu was on October 14, 2015, arraigned by the Nigerian Government over allegations of terrorism, money laundering, treason, etc.

On March 28, 2019, his bail condition was revoked by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court.
