A mild drama ensued at the Federal High Court premises in Abuja on Monday, January 25, as the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and founder of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu got himself entangled in a verbal showdown with a prison warder during his court appearance ahead of his bail hearing.
It was gathered that Mr Kanu, who was brought in handcuffed, refused to come out of the prison vehicle because of the press cameras, but then opted for an alternative entrance in the back of the court through the elevator that is normally reserved for judges.
A similar drama ensued after the hearing when Kanu, while exchanging greetings with friends and relatives, was reluctant to move towards the elevator as demanded by prison officials.
He then pointed warning fingers at them and dared them to hurt him.
Sahara Reporters said the situation nearly led to fisticuffs before it was brought under control and he was led into the prison vehicle.
In the interim, the Federal High Court has fixed next Friday for ruling on the bail application brought by Mr Kanu. The court on Monday heard legal arguments over his bail application.
Mr. Kanu and two others are standing trial of treason preferred against them by the federal government.
