The Nigerian government lawyer Shuaibu Labaran Magaji has revealed that separatist leader, Nnamdi Kanu, denied being a member of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in court on Wednesday.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Magaji stated this while speaking with newsmen at the court premises after Kanu’s trial was adjourned till February 16.
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.
“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,” Magaji said.
