Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has accused the Federal Government of planning to import foreigners to testify against him in court.

Kanu made the argument through one of his lawyers, Maxwell Okpara at a trial hearing on Thursday, December 1.

“My lord, we have uncovered their plan to bring Ghanaians and people from Cameroon to appear in this court to testify against the defendants,” he said.

“We as Nigerians will resist that plot. It cannot work. That is why they are insisting that they should testify behind screen. That plot has failed, it will not work,” he added.

Meanwhile, presiding judge of the Abuja Federal High Court, Justice Binta Nyako, on Thursday, refused to grant bail to Kanu due to the seriousness of the offence he’s accused of.

Kanu, who’s facing charges of treason, has been in custody since his arrest in October 2015.
