The trial of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, is scheduled to resume before the Federal High Court in Abuja today.
But his lead defence lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told Punch on Sunday that his client remained missing. He said the matter would not continue if the Federal Government failed to produce him in court.
Ejiofor insisted that Kanu was still in the custody of the Federal Government and if not produced in court on Tuesday, the trial would not continue.
“On Tuesday, if the Federal Government fails to produce him in court, then the trial will not go on. It is simple. We have asked them to produce him in court because he is in their custody,” the lawyer said.
