The trial of one Eze Ndigbo of Ajao Estate, Lagos, Frederick Nwajagu for alleged terrorism has been postponed to today in a Lagos High Court sitting at Tafawa Balewa Square, or TBS.
Following the absence of Nwajagu’s attorney, the trial judge, Justice Yetunde Adesanya, delayed the case.
Nwajagu, 67, was detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) in April for allegedly threatening to invite IPOB members to Lagos in order to protect Igbo property in the state.
He was charged with the alleged offence on nine counts in a lawsuit with the case number LD/21505C/2023 on May 9.
The prosecution attorney indicated his presence at the hearing in the case yesterday, but the defendant’s attorney was not present.
When the court inquired about his counsel, Nwajagu responded that he was astonished by the absence and that the attorney had promised to be in court with his junior.
