Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of Indigenous People of Biafra has been rearraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on a 15-count amended charge.
Our correspondent reports that,this is the 6th time, the Federal Government is amending it’s charge against Kanu.
Recalled that, Kanu is presently being prosecuted by the Federal Government over alleged treasonable felony, terrorism and other related offences.
Shortly, after taking plea, wherein he pleaded not guilty, the prosecution counsel, Shuaibu Labaran informed the court that he was ready to proceed with trial.
Meanwhile, Mike Ozekhome SAN, leading the legal team of Kanu, objected, because he has two applications challenging validity of charge and jurisdiction.
“Ozekhome said the entire counts of the charge are watery, baseless and like a pack of cards designed to fall.
In view of Ozekhome’s application for an adjournment, the trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako adjourned to February 16, for commencement of trial.
