On October 18, 2015, the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra and director of radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu was illegally arrested in Lagos State by Nigeria’s secret police the Department of State Service(DSS) on orders from the Nigeria president Mohammadu Buhari. The news of the arrest of Mr Kanu generated mass protests across parts of Delta State, Enugu State, Rivers State, Cross River State, Abia State, Imo State, Akwa Ibom State and Anambra State. On October 19, 2015, it was reported that Nnamdi Kanu had been granted bail after a secret arrangement at Magistrate Court,Wuse.

However, the bail seemed "controversial" and there were claims the DSS announced the bail only "to calm the angry people of Biafra, however before and after the announcement, close to 2,700 IPOB were killed, 4000 brutally injured and properties destroy, all this acts was carried by the Nigeria armed forces on the Indigenous people of Biafra. The Nigeria judiciary has been receiving a lot criticism on how Nnamdi Kanu case has been handled. Many have called for the immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu, since there was no reason as to why he was arrested. Even though President Buhari charged Nnamdi Kanu with treason, there was no evidence to back such claims.

The presiding Judge on Nnamdi Kanu case Judge John Tosho, also have accused of secretly collecting over N100million in cash from President Buhari, who is so keen on sending Nnamdi Kanu to Jail. On the 9th of February, The persecuting lawyer called for a secret trial and also to be allowed to present a masked witness against the defendant (Nnamdi Kanu) but the defendant lawyer filed such application thus resulting to Justice Tsoho ruling against the possibility of conducting a secret trial and also presenting a masked witness against Nnamdi Kanu. The case was adjourned to the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th of March 2016.
