Will Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) be in court today for his trial?
Nobody could give the answer to this question last night.
Kanu has not been seen since September 24 when some security agents entered his Afaraukwu, Umuahia home.
He is facing treason charges along with some members of his group.
Only Kanu was granted bail on health grounds with Senator Enyinaya Abaribe as one of his sureties.
Kanu’s lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told AFP: “Only the army can tell us where he is. Either they arrested him or they killed him.
“If he is alive, they should bring him to the court on Tuesday (today).”
Justice ministry spokesman Salihu Othman Isah said whether the trial would go ahead would depend on Kanu’s appearance and the judge.
“I can’t tell you specifically what will happen,” he added.
Kanu was first arrested in October 2015 and held in custody until April.
