Federal Government of Nigeria on Monday filed fresh terrorism charges against detained self-acclaimed leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

According to the amended process filed before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, the Nigerian Government increased the counts in the initial charge it preferred against Kanu from 7-seven count treasonable felony charge to amended 15-count charge marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015 and signed by Director of Public Prosecution, M.B Abubakar.

This amended charge came barely 24 hours to the scheduled commencement of hearing by Justice Binta Nyako.

The court had on December 2, 2021 fixed Tuesday to hear some pending applications including the one Kanu filed to be discharged and acquitted, and abuse of his fundamental human rights.
