Monday, July 26 2021, was earlier scheduled for the hearing of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu case as applied by the Department of State Security (DSS), who is prosecuting him for fronting a self-determination agenda to ensure the disintegration of Nigeria. 

Following the confirmation of the lead counsel of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, on Friday, the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is still held incommunicado by the DSS, was to appear before the Federal High Court judge, Justice Binta Nyanko. 

As early as 8 am Monday, the Federal High Court axis had been militarised, as the joint task force consisting of the Nigerian Soldiers, Police, Civil Defense, DSS, Navy, Airforce etc. 

Patrols to and fro while they pick innocent people who were seen around the premises. 

The illegal arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's sympathizers and supporters lasted for hours while the court was kept in wait for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's arrival. 

Before the time fixed for the hearing, journalists and pressmen like Punch, Channels TV, and others news agencies were denied access into the courtroom. Also, members of Indigenous People Of Biafra IPOB who witness the proceedings were barred from accessing the court routes or risk being arrested. 

After the long wait for the arrival of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at noon, the court was adjourned to October 21, 2021, following the defendant's absence (Mazi Nnamdi Kanu). 

The judge questioned why Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was not present at the court while the prosecutor (DSS) claimed a lack of logistics caused it.  

Infuriated by the excuse, the presiding Justice Nyanko ordered the DSS to bring Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to court on the next adjourned date. Addressing the press, the lead counsel, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, stressed that the absence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in court is a crime against his human rights. 

He noted that he feared his client might have been moved out of the Abuja DSS to Niger state DSS, adding that he has been restricted from seeing him for the past eight days. 

Also speaking, the special counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Alloy Ejimakor, noted that the crime of extraordinary rendition is an international crime, adding that many international communities are interestingly monitoring the proceedings of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's Court case. 

Also in attendance were His Excellency, Chief Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife and the lawyer to the Ohaneze Ndi Igbo, Chief Onyi Uwazuruike, who equally condemned the extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and DSS failure to bring him to court.

 In a video address, the duo lambasted the DSS and noted that the country is under trial, warned that no harm should befall Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
