Adeyanju Reveals 'Real Reason' Why DSS Failed To Produce Nnamdi Kanu In Court

 

KanyiDaily had earlier reported how Nnamdi Kanu’s trial was postponed till October after the Department of State Services (DSS) failed to produce him at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Reacting on his Twitter page, Adeyanju stressed that the reason why the DSS failed to bring Kanu to court on Monday was because the Nigerian government has no case against the IPOB leader.

According to him, the “show” was to keep Kanu in DSS custody indefinitely.

“BREAKING: Court adjourns Nnamdi Kanu’s trial till October because of failure of DSS to bring him to court.

“There’s no case in the first place. All the show is just to keep him in custody indefinitely,” Deji Adeyanju wrote.

Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial Postponed Till October

Justice Binta Nyako had adjourned the Nnamdi Kanu’ trial till October 21, 2021, after the DSS blamed his absence in court on what it termed as “logistical problems”.

The IPOB leader was arraigned on Monday, July 26, 2021, for the continuation of his trial on charges bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony, and managing an unlawful society.

Other allegations levelled against him by the government were the publication of defamatory matter, illegal possession of firearms, and improper importation of goods, among others.

Nnamdi Kanu was initially detained and arraigned in Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, but he fled the country in 2017 after he was granted bail for medical reasons.

After four years since he jumped bail, the IPOB leader was arrested in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria on July 27, in an operation conducted by Nigerian security operatives in collaboration with international partners, to face the charges for which he jumped.
