Court adjourns to Nov 10 Nnamdi Kanu’s application challenging competence of charges


The federal high court on Thursday adjourned the case of proscribed leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to November 10 to hear his application, challenging the competence of charges.

Kanu pleaded not guilty to the seven amended charges preferred against him by the Federal Government.

The IPOB leaders also said he was innocent of all the allegations levelled against him.

When the charges were read to him, he pleaded not guilty.

In the course of the hearing, the court refused his application for transfer to Kuje Correctional Centre from the DSS facility where he has been held.

However, the trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako, allowed three persons of his choice to visit him at the DSS facility.

Recall, the Federal Government recently amended the charges against him raising them to seven counts as against the five counts he was previously being tried for. The new charges border on treasonable felony and terrorism.
