IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu fails to show up for court case

Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, failed to appear in Court in Abuja on Tuesday to answer as to why he should not be convicted for treasonable felony.

Kanu, according to his lawyers was last seen on September 14, 2017 following a military operation in his hometown in Abia State.

Kingsley Kanu, 48, said he was with his older brother Nnamdi, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, at their family home on the evening of Sept. 14 when soldiers stormed in.

“They were shooting everything they saw,” he said, pointing to bullet holes in walls and windows.

“They came here just to kill everybody,” he said, adding that around 20 IPOB members were shot dead but most of the bodies were taken by soldiers.
