Biafra: FG wants to import Ghanaians, Cameroonians to testify against me, Says Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says the government is planning to import foreigners to testify against him in court.

Binta Nyako, justice of the federal high court, Abuja, had denied Kanu and three other accused persons — Chidiebere Onwudiwe, David Nwawuisi, Benjamin Nmadubugwu — bail, citing the severity of their offence as the reason for her decision.

After the ruling, Labaran Shuaibu, counsel to the federal government and prosecutor, asked the court for an order to mask the witnesses who would testify against the defendants.

He said the lives of his witnesses might be in danger if their identities were not concealed.

But Maxwell Okpara, one of Kanu’s lawyers, told the court that the government had lined up foreigners, whose identities it wanted to conceal, as witnesses.

“My lord, we have uncovered their plan to bring Ghanaians and people from Cameroon to appear in this court to testify against the defendants,” he said.

“We as Nigerians will resist that plot. It cannot work. That is why they are insisting that they should testify behind screen. That plot has failed, it will not work.”

After listening to their arguments, Nyako adjourned to December 13 for ruling.

Meanwhile, a large crowd of  pro-Biafra protesters besieged the court, chanting war songs.
