The spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry Enugu, Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka, will be at the Abuja District High Court on October 21, 2021, to attend the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a source close to the priest said on Sunday.
Nnamdi Kanu, still held captive in Department of State Services (DSS) custody in Abuja, faces charges of treason and other baseless crimes after being seized in Kenya and illegally repatriated to Nigeria in July 2021.
A source from the Adoration Ministry in Enugu revealed on Sunday that there was an arrangement underway for “the possible presence of Father Mbaka” in the court on Thursday.
The priest who had repeatedly called for Kanu’s release have not made any official statement regarding the report.
Meanwhile, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lawyer for Nnamdi Kanu, said the leader of IPOB will be brought to court on Thursday by the DSS.
Ejiofor assured IPOB members and Biafra supporters that Kanu would emerge victorious after the judgment, noting that Nigeria’s federal government has no evidence to justify the charges against him.
