Court dismisses Nnamdi Kanu’s suit asking Nigerian Army to produce him in court

The Federal High Court, Abuja, has dismissed an application filed by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), praying the court to order the Chief of Army Staff to produce him in court.

Justice Binta Nyako, delivering ruling on the application on Friday, said that Kanu had failed to prove to the court that he was last seen in the company of the army or any soldier.
“The applicant has not placed enough evidence before the court to show that he was last seen with the Nigerian Army. There is no where in the application where the applicant has shown that he was last seen with even a soldier,’’ Justice Nyako held
According to her, the application failed and has thus been dismissed.
Nyako noted that Kanu filed the application himself and wondered how a person who was said to be missing could have done so.
Mr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, counsel to Kanu sought to know what to do to ensure that his client attended court on the next adjourned date.
But the judge said that as far as the court was concerned, his client was on bail and should be present in court on the next adjourned date to stand his criminal trial.
