British Envoy present in Abuja court for Nnamdi Kanu's trial

A British envoy in Nigeria has arrived at the federal high court in Abuja for the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The UK representative arrived in a white Toyota Highlander.

Kanu, who holds British citizenship, was arrested in June and brought to Nigeria to face trial for treasonable felony.

He had fled to the UK in 2017 after he jumped bail.

Tariq Ahmad, junior minister at Britain’s foreign office, had said the UK asked Nigeria to explain how Kanu was arrested.

The IPOB leader is to be re-arraigned today on a seven-count charge as against the five counts he was previously answering to, bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism.

Chukwuemeka Ezeife, a former Governor of Anambra State, also arrived at the Abuja Federal High Court for Nnamdi Kanu’s trial.

The former governor was accompanied by Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
