The Federal Government has filed amended seven counts against the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, one of his lawyers, Maxwell Opara, said.
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.
The PUNCH reports that with the amendment, the former charges have now become seven.
The amended charges, which were filed by the office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, 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 and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN).
Kanu will be re-arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday.
