The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court on Thursday adjourned the trial of Biafra separatist leader Nnamdi Kanu till November 10.

Mr Kanu was presented for the continuation of the trial earlier today by the State Security Service after the court scolded the secret police for disregarding a previous order to produce the activist in court.

Mr Kanu has been facing charges of terrorism and an attempt to overthrow the Nigerian government. He was abducted by Nigerian agents in Nairobi in June and transferred to Abuja.

Mr Kanu was driven away by the SSS from the courtroom, and he will remain in custody until the next hearing date.

The IPOB leader was arraigned on a seven-count charge.

He had pleaded not guilty to the charges bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism.

Count one of the charge read, “Being the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on diverse dates in 2014 and 2015 in London, United Kingdom, did broadcast on Radio Biafra monitored in Enugu and other areas within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, preparations made by you and others now at large, for states in the South-East and South-South zones and other communities in Kogi and Benue states to secede from the federal republic of Nigeria with a view to constituting same into the Republic of Biafra and you thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 41(c) of the Criminal Code Act, CAP. C77, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.”

Kanu’s legal team led by Ifeanyi Ejiofor had challenged his detention and sought that he should be moved from DSS custody to Kuje prison in Abuja.

But Binta Nyako, the presiding judge, rejected the application.
