Terrorism: Court strikes out eight out of 15 charges against Nnamdi Kanu


Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja, on Friday, struck out eight of the 15 terrorism counts against leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu

The judge struck out the eight charges while ruling on a preliminary objection Kanu raised against all the charges.

“I have read the counts and counts 6,7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 14 have not disclosed any offence against the defendant.

“‘Counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 15 show some allegations. The court shall proceed to try the defendant on those count,” Justice Nyako said.

The federal government had filed the 15-count charges bordering on terrorism and treasonable felony against the Kanu.

The IPOB leader has been in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, since his arrest in June 2021.

Kanu was arrested in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria to continue his trial before Justice Nyako.

He was arrested and arraigned for agitating for the actualization of Biafra.

However, the IPOB leader contested the charges in a fundamental human rights suit against the Federal Government.
