The treasonable felony charges against Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), have been revised by the Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, the federal government has dropped one of the seven charges against the pro-Biafra activist.
Nnamdi Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, informed the media on Wednesday about the newest development.
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.”
Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court dismissed eight of Kanu’s 15 treasonable felony charges in April, according to Anaedoonline.ng.
Counts 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14 of the charges were dismissed by the judge.
Counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 15 were allowed.
However, as of the time of submitting this report, the most recent charge dropped by the federal government could not be determined.
