FG Amends Charges Against Nnamdi Kanu Ahead Of Bail Application Hearing

Ahead of the hearing of his bail application scheduled for Wednesday, the Federal Government has amended the treasonable felony charges against Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Aloy Ejimakor, Kanu’s Special Counsel, told the press that one of the seven-count charges was removed.

He 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.”

Trial Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court Abuja had, on April 8, struck out eight out of the 15-count treasonable felony charges preferred against Kanu.

Justice Nyako struck out counts 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12,13 and 14 of the charges.

She, however, allowed counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 15.

The IPOB leader would appear before Justice Nyako today for a hearing regarding his bail application.
