Some attorneys of banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader Nnamdi Kanu have been named as collaborators in suspected treason by the Federal Government.
According to a member of Kanu’s legal team who requested anonymity in an interview with Newsmen, the government named Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Maxwell Opara as accomplices of the IPOB leader.
The government said that when Kanu jumped bail and departed the country, Ejiofor and Opara were in frequent touch with him.
Kanu was later re-arrested and transferred back to Nigeria from Kenya to finish his terrorist trial, according to Anaedoonline.ng.
On April 8, Justice Binta Nyako dismissed eight of the 15 counts of treasonable felony against the beleaguered IPOB leader.
The judge struck out counts 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12,13 and 14 of the charges.
She allowed counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 15.
Meanwhile, the Federal government has removed one charge out of the seven against the pro-Biafra activist.
