The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Thursday alleged that the Federal Government was conniving with foreigners to testify against him in court.
Kanu made the allegation at an Abuja Federal High Court, following a prayer by counsel to the government, Labaran Shuaibu that the justice Binta Nyako-led court should order those testifying against him to wear mask.
Shuaibu explained that the lives of the prosecution witness may be at risk if their identities were not concealed.
But a member of the pro-Biafra legal team, Maxwell Okpara said, “My lord, we have uncovered their plan to bring Ghanaians and people from Cameroon to appear in this court to testify against the defendants.
“We as Nigerians will resist that plot. It cannot work. That is why they are insisting that they should testify behind screen. That plot has failed, it will not work.”
Kanu, alongside three other accused persons, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, David Nwawuisi, and Benjamin Nmadubugwu are currently standing trial before the Justice Binta Nyako-led court for charges bordering on terrorism.
The matter has since been adjourned to 13 December by Justice Nyako after listening to the argument of both legal teams.
