The Federal Government has listed some lawyers of the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, as accomplices in alleged treason.
In an interview with Vanguard, a member of Kanu’s legal team, who craved anonymity, said the government listed Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Maxwell Opara as accomplices of the IPOB leader.
He said the government alleged that Ejiofor and Opara were constantly in contact with Kanu after he jumped bail and fled the country.
Naija News recalls Kanu was subsequently re-arrested and repatriated back to the country from Kenya to continue with his terrorism trial.
On April 8, Justice Binta Nyako struck out eight out of the 15-count treasonable felony charge levelled against the embattled IPOB leader
The judge struck out counts 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12,13 and 14 of the charges.
She allowed counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 15.
Meanwhile, the Federal government has removed one charge out of the seven against the pro-Biafra activist.
