Just In: FG Files Fresh Terrorism Charges Against Nnamdi Kanu
According to TheCable, Aloy Ejimakor, counsel to the IPOB leader, confirmed the development today to newsmen.
In the amended process it filed before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, the government increased the counts in the initial charge it preferred against Kanu.
Kanu, who is standing trial on charges bordering on treasonable felony, is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Kanu, who has been in detention since his alleged abduction from Kenya and forceful return to Nigeria, faced seven treasonable felony charges, will now enter his fresh plea to 15 amended charges marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015, and signed by the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, M. B. Abubakar.
The charges were amended barely 24 hours before the scheduled commencement of hearing by trial Justice Binta Nyako.
Meanwhile, he is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday for the continuation of his trial.
