IPOB remain terror organization, charges reduced, trial adjoined till 18th and 26th of May
The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, has on Friday, struck out eight out of the 15-count treasonable felony charge the Federal Government preferred against IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

According to reports,  Justice Binta Nyako, struck out counts 6,7,9,10,11,12,13 and 14 of the charge.

The ruling followed an application Kanu filed to quash the entire charge against him.

In the application he filed through his team of lawyers led by Chief Mike Ozekhome(SAN), Kanu maintained that the charge against him was legally defective.

According to Lawyer, since some of the allegations FG levelled against Kanu, were purportedly committed outside the country, the high court, therefore, lack the jurisdiction to entertain the charge.

Ozekhome urged the court to dismiss the charge, as well as to discharge and acquit the Defendant of the entire 15-count charge pending against him.

However, 8 out of the 15 charges were struck out.

Meanwhile, Kanu’s defence team led by Mike Ozekhome (SAN) had asked for bail application, which Justice Nyako subsequently fixed for May 2022.
