 The director of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has today, December 23rd, been arraigned before a Federal High Court in Abuja amid heavy security presence.
According to a Tweet by SaharaReporters, the director of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu who was arraigned today before a Federal High Court in Abuja amid heavy security presence, has objected to trial by Justice Mohammed.
 
"FLASH: @radiobiafralive Director, Nnamdi Kanu objects to trial by Justice Mohammed saying info available to shows he can't get a fair trial," the online publication tweeted.
 
Online reports reveal that outside the court premises, scores of heavily armed police officers were seen jumping down from a long truck. Both uniformed and non-uniformed security operatives can be seen around the court house.
 
 
Nnamdi Kanu was arrested by operatives of the State Security Services (SSS) on Wednesday, October 14 in Lagos on his arrival to Nigeria from the United Kingdom. He was earlier charged for criminal intimidation of the Nigeria government among others at a Magistrate Court in Abuja.
 
The court later discharged and struck out all cases against kanu after the SSS applied for the discontinuation of the case for lack of jurisdiction by the Magistrate Court to entertain the matter.
 
Also on Thursday, December 17, the Federal High Court presided over by Ademola Adeniyi ordered an immediate and unconditional release of the accused.
