The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has appeared in court for the continuation of his trial on an amended six-count of treasonable felony and terrorism instituted against him by the Federal Government.
Nnamdi Kanu Arrives Court
The IPOB appeared at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday morning, May 18, to hear the ruling on his bail application, pending the determination of the charge against him.
According to Vanguard, a member of Kanu’s legal team, who craved anonymity, said that the FG had amended the charges against the IPOB leader.
The source said that some lawyers representing the embattled IPOB leader, including Misters Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Maxwell Opara, were listed as accomplices of the defendant.
It was gathered that the FG alleged in the amended charges that the lawyers, were constantly in contact with Kanu, after he jumped bail and fled the country.
It will be recalled that Kanu was subsequently re-arrested and returned back to the country from Kenya, under controversial circumstances.
KanyiDaily recalls that Nnamdi Kanu had pleaded not guilty to 15-count charges bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism instituted against him.
Justice Binta Nyako had on April 8, struck out eight out of the 15-count charges, saying that the were mere repetitions that did not disclose any offence that could be sustained by the proof of evidence before the court.
