Nnamdi Kanu

The President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government has amended the charges against pro-Biafra agitator, Nnamdi Kanu.

The amended charges were served to Kanu’s lawyers ahead of Thursday.

Lead counsel to Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor disclosed this in a statement he signed and issued last night, after routine visit to Kanu.

The statement reads partly: “Today, I and my colleague, Bar. Alloy Ejimakor, had a very fruitful visitation to Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We discussed a wide range of matters, especially concerning hearing of his case and appearance in court on 21st October, 2021. There will be more on this later.

“The coast is now clear for legal fireworks this Thursday, particularly now that we have been served with a purported “Amended Charge” in the Case.”

Ejimakor disclosed that Kanu is in good spirit ahead of the resumption of his trial on Thursday.

“Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is in good spirit, awaiting his auspicious outing on Thursday, the 21st Day of October, 2021. He commended those who are in the spirit with him, while declaring that Chukwuokike Abiama has ordained this special Day for a victorious outing,” he said.

Kanu is billed to appear before Justice Binta Nyako-led Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Thursday.

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, will appear before Justice Nyako to continue his trial for treason.

The Biafra agitator was rearrested in July and repatriated to Nigeria, after he jumped bail and fled the country in 2017.
