When the matter was called up, the prosecution counsel, M. B. Abubakar, told the court that the matter was slated for hearing and that they were ready to continue, but unfortunately wasn’t in court.

Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told the court that there was a pending application before the court to transfer Kanu from the custody of the DSS to the correctional centre.

In her ruling, Justice Binta Nyako stated that the trial cannot continue in the absence of Kanu since he is not available to stand his trial.

Justice Nyako also urged the DSS to produce Nnamdi Kanu in court for trial.

The court adjourned to October 21, 2021, for continuation of hearing.
