Due to the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), traders at Aba Shopping Center in Abia State have suspended business activities.
IPOB’s leader will be arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja this morning.
In 2017, Kanu, who is on trial for treason, was granted bail on health grounds.
However, he violated all bail conditions and fled abroad.
The Department of State Services (DSS) took him into custody last month as a result of an order from the court.
A trader, who spoke off the record, told Daily Trust that the traders did not shut down in solidarity with Kanu, but because there could be violence later in the day.
In other parts of the city, our correspondent observed normalcy.
At the time this report was filed, Kanu had not been brought to court.
