FG Amends Charges Against IPOB’s Nnamdi Kanu




Court Strikes Out Six Remaining Charges Against IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu

The Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government has amended the treasonable felony charges against the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.

Naija News reports that the Federal government has removed one charge out of the seven against the pro-Biafra activist.

The latest development was made known to newsmen on Wednesday by Nnamdi Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor.

Ejimakor said: “The Federal Government just amended the charges against Nnamdi Kanu now, they removed one, you know it was seven, but they removed one, and now it’s six.

“We are in court waiting for the judge’s arrival, and Kanu himself is yet to arrive.”

Naija News recalls that Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court had in April struck out eight out of the 15-count treasonable felony charge levelled against Kanu.

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.
