The Nigerian government lawyer Shuaibu Labaran Magaji revealed that Nnamdi Kanu denied being a member of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in court on Wednesday.
Magaji stated this while speaking with journalists at the court premises after the trial was adjourned till February 16.
Magaji, who brought two prosecution witnesses to court on Wednesday, expressed the disappointment that the trial could not begin immediately.
According to him, the defense team ambushed the court with an application for bail and another application seeking to quash the charges against Kanu.
Magaji added that Kanu “vehemently” denied being an IPOB member.
He said, “One of the charges suggesting that the defendant, Nnamdi Kanu is a member of IPOB and he vehemently denied being a member of IPOB. That is very curious and we urge Nigerians to see us through how we are going to prove all those charges against the defendant in no time to come.”
