Nnamdi Kanu

For lack of evidence, Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court, Abuja has today dismissed six out of 11 count charges preferred against the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mr. Nnamdi Kanu and three other accused persons.

However, Justice Nyako retained five other counts which borders on terrorism, possession of arms and treason.  The accused persons are being re-arraigned again in the remaining charges.

The charges dismissed included charges three, five, seven, nine and 11.
Accused of running an illegal organization on count five, Justice Nyako ruled that nothing was placed before the court to indicate that it was an illegal organisation.
Count seven which is on importation of radio transmission equipment, Nyako  said that the court was not given any proof to suggest that the importation was illegal.

On count 11, again, she said that there was no proof that the defendants are researching on how to make Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) as claimed by the prosecution.
