The Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed an application by the Indigenous People of Biafra seeking to compel the Chief of Army staff to produce the missing leader of the group, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.
Justice Binta Nyako also over-ruled the appeal for lack of merit and proof, that the chief of army staff was indeed the last person seen with Kanu.
Counsel for IPOB, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had prayed the court to order the Chief of Army staff to produce his client claiming that no member of Kanu’s family had seen or heard from him since September 14th, 2017.
Opposing the motion, however, the counsel for the Army, Mr. Akinlolu Kehinde, told the court that Kanu was not and had never been in the custody of the Nigerian army.
Ejiofor on October 17 during the trial told the court that he is looking for his client.
