The Nigerian government through the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami has filed amended seven counts charges against the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, one of his lawyers, Maxwell Opara, revealed.
Opara stated this in a short interview with journalists on the premises of the Federal High Court in Abuja when he accompanied Senator Ifeanyi Ubah to file a motion on notice seeking an order granting him leave to visit Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services.
“The Federal Government has filed amended seven counts against Kanu,” he said with no details.
Vantage News gathered that the amended charges border on treasonable felony and Kanu’s alleged involvement in acts of terrorism.
As of the time of this report, the details of the amended charges had yet to be made public to journalists by the office of the Attorney General of the Federation.
Kanu will be re-arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday, October 21 2021.
