After the alleged invasion of Nnamdi Kanu's home by the Nigerian Army and his disappearance 13 days ago, his legal team has declared him missing and prayed the court to order the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. - General Tukur Buratai, to produce him in court.

The Presidency on Sunday said that it has facts to show that IPOB was registered in the State of California in United States of America.

IPOB and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, are campaigning for an independent country of Biafra made up of ethnic Igbos.

Kanu is now on bail pending the resumption of his trial in Abuja next month on charges of treasonable felony.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that the younger brother to the IPOB leader Emmanuel Kanu had called on the Nigerian military to either release his brother or his body to him. "I don't think he's under an obligation to tell anyone".

Further on the proscription, the federal government of Nigeria had equally and still insists that IPOB is a terrorist organisation, maintaining that the group had printed its currency and was extorting money from innocent citizens of Nigeria. IPOB maintains that the group is non-violent.

He called on the global community to prevail on the army to produce his parents and the IPOB leader. IPOB is described as a separatist group wanting to breakaway from Africa's most populous nation.

The Nigerian army two weeks ago declared the group a terrorist organization after a clash between the two in south-east Abia State.

Publishing in its Gazette is a part of the procedure required of the Federal Government before the group can be legally proscribed, Punch reports.

Meanwhile, Kanu through his lawyer in the suit filed before the court is praying it to make an order compelling the Chief of Army staff to produce him (Kanu) in court on the next adjourned date to enable him defend himself in the terrorism charges slammed against him by the Federal government.
