Biafrans Set For Showdown As Nnamdi Kanu Appears In Court On Monday

Reports say pro-Biafra protesters are likely to storm a Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday, January 18, 2016.

This coming following reports that their leader, Nnamdi Kanu will be appearing in same court by 9.00am and will be represented by a new lawyer, a reputable Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

According to Igberetv, the SAN whose identity has been hidden, will appear in court with Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor to represent the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).

While counting the gains of getting a new legal practitioner to represent the pro-Biafran in court, IPOB says Ejiofor has been able to among other things, secure the release of over 100 IPOB members locked up in Abuja prison, file a motion at the High court that compels the DSS to bring Kanu to court in person each time there is a hearing, file the bail application which has resulted in the director having a hearing on Monday next week.
