Arraignment: IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu encourages followers to go on a dry fast

Tension in Umuahia as Nnamdi Kanu heads to court over health issues

On Tuesday, there was tension in Umuahia, Abia State, as the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and his lawyer, Aloy Ejimako, went to the court concerning Kanu’s health.

The entire access road to the court venue was blocked by truckloads of military, police, and other security agencies, instilling fear in Umuahia drivers.

In an application titled Nnamdi Kanu vs FGN and 7 others, Ejimako sought an ex parte order directing the court to, among other things, grant Kanu temporary freedom to attend to his health in any medical institution of his choice in Nigeria, pending the hearing of the case.

Ejimako has also requested substitute service for the third and fourth respondents on the motion on notice.
However, the high court, presided over by Justice K. C. J. Okereke, denied the motion and directed the counsel to notify the respondents.

He approved the application for substituted service on the third, fifth, and seventh respondents and continued the hearing on the move on notice until September 21.

Responding to questions from the press in Umuahia, Ejimako stated, “Today, I obtained an Order from the High Court of Abia State to serve by substituted means an Application for Enforcement of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s Fundamental Rights, which is filed and pending before the High Court of Abia State.” The substantive matter will be heard in Umuahia on September 21, 2021.”
