BY QUADRI SALIU

Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, who was rearrested in the United Kingdom by Interpol and extradited to Nigeria on Sunday told the Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday that he flee Nigeria when it appears that his life was not safe.

He stated this when he was docked before trial Justice Binta Nyako by the Federal Government and accused of jumping bail in 2017

Kanu told the court that he did not deliberately jump bail in 2017, adding that his disappearance was due to the unlawful invasion of his house by security agents, in an operation he said resulted in the death of many innocent people.

“I would have been killed the way others were killed when my house was invaded”

His statement prompted  Justice Nyako who asked him to get in touch with his lawyer to brief him about all that has transpired in the case in his absence.

Though the case was initially fixed for October 20, owing to FG’s application for accelerated hearing, the court brought the matter forward to July 26 for the continuation of the trial.

The court further directed the Prosecution to notify Kanu’s lawyer, even as it remanded him in the custody of the DSS.
