Report also gathered that there has been massive deployment of Nigerian soldiers to the southeast region ahead of Kanu's trial.

However, the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has urged Nigerian government to produce Nnamdi Kanu in court tomorrow.

"Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's absence in tomorrow's court trial would bring devastating destruction to the country and may fuel rumours that he has been murdered in the detention of the Department of State Services (DSS)", MASSOB said.

On Tuesday, the MASSOB's leader, Mr Uchenna Madu, said, "MASSOB is supporting the civil disobedience call by IPOB's directive for Nigeria in the southeast to sit-at-home any day Nnamdi Kanu would be brought to court."

Furthermore, he said "Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is overwhelmed due to the support he is getting from the southeast, and implored all his supporters to keep praying for him and also remain vigilant at all times."
