The Nigerian government has amended the seven-count terrorism charge against Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The government has filed the amended seven-count terrorism charge against Kanu.
The amended charge, marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015, filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja, contains all the allegations against Kanu, which were earlier confirmed by the court.
In a dispatch, the Federal Government said Kanu made a deadly threat that anyone who disobeyed IPOB’s seating order in the South East should write his or her will.
The government alleged that Kanu aired several programmes in 2018 calling on his members to kill security operatives and families.
It pointed out that the offence was punishable under Section 1 (2) (h) of the Terrorism Prevention Amendment Act, 2013.
