to rule on bail application filed by the IPOB leader
and co-defendants, as well as an application filed
against secret trial of the IPOB leader.
The coordinator of the adorable children who is also
a top official of IPOB zone 2 Umuebulu 2 Etche,
Igweocha(Portharcourt) told Family Writers that the
kids will be presenting a gift to Nnamdi Kanu, and
will also protest against the secret trial of the Biafra
leader, even as they have vowed that they will not
leave Abuja until Nnamdi Kanu whom they
addresses as their ‘father’ is released to them.
“We are taking the kids to Abuja to do a
presentation of gift to our leader and also to stand
in solidarity with our leader Nnamdi Kanu as he
appears in court tomorrow,
“The children of Biafra are telling the Federal
Republic of Nigeria to release their leader and
father, Nnamdi Kanu,” the coordinator of the ‘Futures
of Biafraland’, Mazi Izuchukwu Agu stated while
speaking with Family Writers Press.
The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB),
Nnamdi Kanu has been held in detention since
October 14, 2015 when he was arrested by agents
of Nigeria secret service known as Department of
State Services,DSS. Several court injunctions
ordering for Kanu’s release have been flagrantly
disobeyed by the Nigeria government.
Meanwhile, the judge currently handling the
case, Mrs. Binta Hajiya Nyako had earlier ruled
on December 13, 2016 that the trial of the IPOB
leader and three other co-defendants will be
classified or done secretly in line with the
proposal of the Nigeria government. The
defense counsels to Nnamdi Kanu and co-
defendants have seriously contested the court
ruling, arguing that it is totally unconstitutional
and an abuse of the defendants’ inalienable
right to fair hearing.
The Justice Binta Nyako presided Federal High
Court will tomorrow rule on whether or not to
continue with the secret trial, as well rule on
the bail application filed by Nnamdi Kanu and
co-defendants(Benjamin Madubugwu, David
Nwawusi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe).
