Nnamdi Kanu to appear in court Monday as FG files seven amended charges

The Federal Government has filed seven amended charges of terrorism against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

This is coming despite the October 13 judgement of the Court of Appeal discharging Kanu. But the appellate court has since ordered a stay of execution of its own order.

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja has fixed Monday for Kanu’s team of lawyers and the Federal Government prosecution team to address the court based on the ongoing case between him and the government.

The amended charges marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015 contained all earlier sustained allegations against the IPOB leader.

In the amended charges, the government alleged that Kanu issued a deadly threat via a broadcast, heard and received across the country that anyone who disobeyed his sit-at-home order in the south-eastern states should write his or her will.
