Apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has urged the Federal Government to produce Nnamdi Kanu, Leader of The Indigenous People of Biafra, in court on Thursday.
Ohanaeze said producing Kanu unfailingly in court would indicate that the IPOB leader is sound in health.
Kanu is expected to appear before Justice Binta Nyako-led Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday.
The Department of State Services, DSS, had failed to produce Kanu in court in July, following his rearrest and repatriation from Kenya.
However, Ohanaeze said the IPOB leader should be given a fair trial.
In a statement by its spokesman, Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, the group said the Federal government should “ensure that our son, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is produced in court on Thursday, October 21, 2021.
“This is necessary to prove to the global community that Nnamdi Kanu is not only hale and hearty but that shady judicial process is not contemplated while on trial”.
