The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Mr Nnamdi Kanu, has arrived the Abuja Chief Magistrate Court to answer criminal charges brought against him by the Federal Government.
         
The court had ordered the Department of State Services (DSS) to produce Mr. Kanu unfailingly before it on Monday.

Kanu had earlier failed to appear in court as
the prosecution counsel, Mr Moses Idakwo, told the court that the IPOD leader  was not brought to court because of an application challenging the jurisdiction of the court to continue the trial, which was already slated for hearing.

Following the absence of the accused person, Magistrate Shuaibu Usman ordered the DSS to produce him on November 23, to enable him identify his legal team.

Mr Nnamdi Kanu is standing trial for alleged criminal conspiracy, managing and belonging to an unlawful society and criminal intimidation contrary to sections 97 and 397 of the penal code.

Kanu was arrested on October 18 by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) on his arrival from the United Kingdom.
