The Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government has filed fresh terrorism allegations against the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.

Naija News reports that the Federal Government filed the amended process before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Monday.

The government increased the counts in the initial charge it preferred against Nnamdi Kanu.

The IPOB leader who was facing a seven-count treasonable felony charge, will now enter his fresh plea to a 15-count amended charge marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015, and signed by the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, M. B. Abubakar.

FG amended the charge, barely 24 hours to the scheduled commencement of hearing by trial Justice Binta Nyako.

The court had on December 2, fixed 18, 19 and 20 January to hear some pending applications, including the one Kanu filed to be discharged and acquitted.
