Ex-Governor of Anambra State and representative of Igbo worldwide, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, is one of the dignitaries in court for the trial of leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, on Monday.

 

It is not immediately clear what role the 82-year-old administrator will be playing as the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja today resumes Kanu’s trial.

 

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has, however, cautioned against any form of intimidation, oppression and arrest of members of the Biafra separatist group or their sympathisers.

 

On June 29, 2021, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, had announced that Mr Kanu had been rearrested and brought back to Nigeria to continue facing his trial

 

Kanu was granted bail in April 2017, following which he fled the country after the invasion of his home in Afara-Ukwu, near Umuahia, Abia State, by the military in September.

 

The judge, Binta Nyako, subsequently revoked his bail for ditching his trial.

 

Mrs Nyako also ordered his trial to be separated from the rest of the co-defendants.

 

Bishops of the Catholic Ecclesiastical Province of Owerri, Imo State, had described Kanu as “a metaphor for political exclusion and marginalisation.”
