Omoyele Sowore, a human rights activist, has told the Federal Government, to produce Nnamdi Kanu in court today, Thursday.
It will be recalled that the Department of State Services (DSS) failed to produce the Biafra separatist leader in court last time out, and many supporters of the 54-year-old are calling on the government to ensure Kanu appears in court today — for them to be sure he is alive.
Kanu’s organization, the banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is a controversial group canvassing for the sovereignty of Eastern Nigeria, and Kanu has always run into trouble with Nigerian authorities.
“#FreeNnamdiKanu today asking for self-determination is not a crime! In particular, the Federal Govt must produce him in court early this morning #RevolutionNow,” Sowore wrote on his official Facebook page on Thursday morning.
Recall this newspaper reported earlier that the Federal Government slammed an amended seven-count charge against Kanu, while the Federal High Court issued a hearing notice for Thursday.
The notice titled “Federal Republic of Nigeria Versus Nnamdi Kanu” with suit number: FHC/ABJ/CR/383/15, was served on Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor and the prosecuting lawyer, Shuaibu Labaran.
Kanu is being tried on charges of treasonable felony.
