The Federal Government, on Monday, filed additional terrorism charges against the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
In the amended process it filed before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, the government increased the counts in the initial charge it preferred against Kanu.
The charges were amended barely 24 hours before the scheduled commencement of hearing by trial Justice Binta Nyako.
Kanu, who has been in detention since his alleged abduction from Kenya and forceful return to Nigeria, faced seven treasonable felony charges, but will now enter his fresh plea to 15 amended charges marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015, and signed by the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, M. B. Abubakar.
