The self-acclaimed leader of the proscribed Indigenous peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu on Tuesday 29th of June 2021, opens up on why he fled from the country despite the criminal charges of terrorism brought against him by the federal government.
Nnamdi Kanu who was brought to court for the continuance of trial shortly after he was intercepted by a security operation, sought the permission of Justice Binta Nyako to address the court and present his side of the story.
Kanu told the court that his house was unlawfully overrun by security men along with his life seriously threatened.
Nnamdi Kanu’s reaction was provoked by the federal government evidence through counsel Shuaib Labaran that Kanu jumped the bail granted by the court to escape trial by fleeing out of the country.
Moreover, Labaran had applied to the court for an order to remand Kanu in the custody of a security operative (Department of State service).
