The family of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu has vowed to sit out the court hearing set for July 26 if the Federal Government does not reveal how the IPOB leader was “abducted in Kenya and brought to Nigeria”.
Mr Kanu’s younger brother Emmanuel spoke in Umuahia, Abia State capital on behalf of the family on Tuesday during a visit by traditional rulers under the aegis of Monarchs of Biafran Land.
According to him, the family would not attend any court hearing against Kanu unless it was explained to them how their son was “kidnapped in Kenya, and who his abductors were or working for.”
He further said, “We won’t be in court on 26th July until they explain to us how and who kidnapped Nnamdi in Kenya.
“We need clarifications on what happened and how he was brought to Nigeria illegally.
“Even Britain, whose citizenship he holds, said it needed explanations on what happened. So, we need to know what happened.”
Meanwhile, the IPOB had earlier called on south-easterners to attend the hearing en masse.
Kanu will be brought to a Federal High Court in Abuja on July 26 to continue his trial for alleged treasonable felony among other charges.
