IPOB: Eight of 15 terrorism charges against Nnamdi Kanu thrown out

Eight of the 15 terrorism and felony charges preferred by the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) against the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, were on Friday struck out by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, presided over by Justice Binta Nyako.

The judge decided while ruling on a preliminary objection filed by the IPOB leader.

“In this instant preliminary objection application, I have read the counts and come to the conclusion that counts six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12 and 14 have not disclosed any offence against the defendant.

“‘Counts one, two, three, four, five, eight and 15 show some allegations, which the defendant has to answer.

“The court shall proceed to try the defendant on those counts,” Justice Nyako said.
