FG amends charges against Nnamdi Kanu

The Cable

The federal government has amended the criminal charges filed against Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The IPOB leader will now be rearraigned on a seven-count charge as against the five counts he was previously answering to, bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism.

The case is scheduled to come up on October 21, before Binta Nyako, a federal high court judge.

Meanwhile, the court has issued a hearing notice to Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lawyer to Kanu, and that of the prosecution.

The notice gave fresh directives on the conduct of the proceedings throughout the case.

“This case will be transferred from the general cause list to the hearing paper for Thursday, 21st October, 2021,at 9 o’clock forenoon and will come on to be on that day if the business of the court permits or otherwise on some adjustment day of which you will receive no further notice,” the notice reads.

“If either party desires to postpone the hearing, he must apply to the court as soon as possible for that purpose, and if the application is based on any matter of fact, he must be prepared to give proof of those facts.
