Deji Adeyanju, an activist, has called on all members of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to assault the grounds of a Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday to support their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Adeyanju stated on Twitter that Nigerians have the right to attend the trials of persons they support and believe in. He urged Kanu’s followers not to be scared to flood the court and express their support on Monday.
Kanu was detained again earlier this month and brought before Justice Binta Nyarko, who remanded him in the custody of the Department of State Security, DSS. Kanu’s trial for treasonable crime, unlawful possession of firearms, and other accusations is set to resume before her on Monday.
“I call to Nnamdi Kanu’s followers to crowd the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday as they commence his trial,” Adeyanju tweeted.
“That is the language Buhari is fluent with. Don’t let anyone frighten you. Citizens have the right to protest as well as attend a trial involving one of their own.”
