FG files new terrorism charges against Kanu
The Federal Government has filed new terrorism charges against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.
In the amended process it filed before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Monday, the FG added to the counts in the initial charge against the IPOB leader.
Kanu, who has been in detention since his alleged abduction from Kenya to Nigeria, faced a seven-count treasonable felony charge.
He will now enter his fresh plea to a 15-count amended charge marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015, and signed by the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, M. B. Abubakar.
The charge was amended barely 24 hours before the scheduled commencement of hearing by trial Justice Binta Nyako.
Meanwhile, his lawyer has expressed confidence that the embattled IPOB leader will be able to defend himself in court
