Leader of a pro-Biafran group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu was absent at the Federal High Court, Abuja Tuesday when his trial for alleged treasonable offence resumed.

It would be recalled that Nnamdi Kanu has not been seen for several weeks after an alleged invasion of his house in Umuahia, Abia state by Nigerian soldiers.

However, his counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told the Federal High Court that his client was “in the custody of the (federal government)”.

It would also be recalled that the IPOB leader is facing a number of charges in connection with his calls for a separate state for the Igbo people.

Kanu who was released on bail in April this year on health grounds with stringent bail conditions was first arrested in October 2015.

The judge while granting him bail had ordered that he should not attend rallies, be in a crowd of more than 10 people or give any media interviews.

The IPOB leader was also ordered to pay sureties totaling $835 000 to ensure that he did not jump bail.

Kanu’s younger brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu had claimed that the army attacked the family’s compound last month, killing 28 a claim that the army has denied explaining also that the IPOB leader is not in their custody.
