The trial between the federal government of Nigeria, and the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu had taken another dimension as the trial judge on June 18, 2019, revoked his bail, ordered for his arrest, and invoked 'trial in-absentia' following the unavailability of the IPOB's leader (in court).

However, the legal representative of the defendant, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Nnamdi Kanu argued, via a written application, that the order(s) do not hold water because of its sister's case of his client's sureties to 'show cause' has not been disposed-off in the appellate court. In addition, the written addresses bothering the 'trial within a trial' of the 2nd, 3rd defendants will be adopted forthwith.

Also, before the court is pending applications aligned by the lead counsel of IPOB, 'challenging the competence of the charge on the ground that the evidence filed in support of the charge does not disclose a 'prima facie' case against the defendants.

In that regard, the basis of the trial is pending on the legal applications that are or would be put forward by the defense counsels.
