The Federal High Court in Abuja has adjourned the trial of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, today.
The trial was adjourned to December 5th due to the absence of the Judge in court.
Nnamdi Kanu is being tried for treasonable felony amongst other things.
The judge, Justice Binta Nyako, is said to be attending the ‘All Judges’ Conference’ being held at the National Judicial Institute, Abuja.
Kanu was however absent from court today making it the second time he has been asked to appear and he did not turn up.
Senator Eyinnaa Abaribe who is a co-defendant, as well as a surety for the IPOB leader, was however present in court.
Meanwhile, Kanu’s lawyer, Mr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had earlier alleged that his client disappeared after the soldiers allegedly invaded his home on September 14, 2017, adding that the Nigerian Army was in the best position to produce the defendant.
