The trial of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will resume tomorrow Monday 26th July, 2021 before a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.
Mazi Kanu is being tried by the Federal Government on charges bordering on treasonable felony, terrorism, unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society.
Although he was granted bail on health grounds, Mazi Kanu jumped bail and was re-arrested on the 29th of last month by security agents.
Following his re-arrest and trial in court last month, Justice Binta Nyako granted the request of the prosecution counsel that Mazi Kanu be remanded in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
As at the close of work on Friday, the court management was reported to be working closely with relevant security agencies to avert possible security breach in view of the large turnout of IPOB followers and other spectators often witnessed each time his case came up.
Although all judicial correspondents were issued special identity cards for the coverage, only 10 journalists were approved by the DSS to witness the proceedings.
Positive fm gathered that some security operatives, including armed police men with their official vehicles were sighted around the court premises on Sunday evening possibly to secure the court ahead of today’s proceedings.
