Kanu was brought into the court premises in a convoy about 8 am and will appear before Justice Binta Nyako.
Kanu was recently rearrested in Kenya and returned to Nigeria to resume his trial.
Kanu jumped trial in September 2017 and was speaking from undisclosed locations until his rearrest in June.
However, most journalists are barred from entering the courtroom as a heavy security presence is witnessed in and around the court to forestall any form of protest.
