IPOB Head, Nnamdi Kanu


A Federal High Court in Abuja has rejected six of the 11 charges brought against Nnamdi Kanu, head of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), by the government of Nigeria.

A magistrate court in Abuja had tossed out comparative charges in 2015. 

Presiding judge Justice Binta Nyako said she took the choice to reject the six charges in light of the fact that the prosecutor did not present any proof. 

Kanu would however be re-summoned on a five-count charge of treasonable felony, she said. 

In the mean time, exuberant cops on Wednesday, March 1, avoided individuals from the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) from accessing the Federal High Court, Abuja. 

The officers likewise kept a few journalists from entering the high court without giving proper reason behind its activities. 

Justice Nyako however criticized Nigerian security Agencies for declining to permit journalists witness the trial of Nnamdi Kanu and his co-defendants on Wednesday. 

Nnamdi Kanu's counsel Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor conveyed the consideration of the matter to the presiding judge who had cryptic words for the security agencies. 

Ejiofor bemoaned the continuous terrorizing and concealment of journalists who are present to cover the court procedings of the trial.
