Ifeanyi Ejiofor, counsel of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has asked a federal high court in Abuja to order Tukur Buratai, chief of army staff, to reveal the whereabouts of his client.
Last week, Ejiofor filed a suit at the court asking it to vacate its order proscribing the group.
The military had declared IPOB a terrorist organisation before the government approached the court to legitimise its action outlawing the group.
But on Wednesday, Kanu’s counsel filed an amended suit asking the court to order the chief of army staff to disclose the whereabouts of his client.
He confirmed the filing of the legal action to TheCable.
He said Kanu was last seen on September 14 when soldiers invaded his residence at Afara-ukwu in Umuahia, Abia state.
Emmanuel, Kanu’s younger brother, had earlier asked the army to produce his sibling whether dead or alive.
The army is yet to respond to the demands for the disclosure of the whereabouts of Kanu.
