Newwavereporters have on Thursday, July 22, gathered that the Federal Government of Nigeria has added fresh charges on the case against the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, who was recently rearrested in Kenya and brought back to Nigeria
Sources revealed that apart from the charge of terrorism leveled against him, fresh charges such as killing of security operatives, killing of Fulani cattle herders, banditry and others shall form part of the charges.
Stating the new charges, the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said, “Nnamdi Kanu’s case is going into another dimension as fresh charges shall be added to the already existing ones”.
Speaking further, he said, “What we are talking about here include murder case, terrorism, banditry and criminality. Kanu committed a heinous crime that have not been recorded in this country before like ordering IPOB to be attacking and killing innocent Fulani Cattle rearers that are only catering for their cows, killing innocent force personnel, and so many other things that make up the new charges that will be added to the already existing ones.
“We’ve also passed a signal to all IPOB Members that non of them should be seen around the court premises on the trial date of Nnamdi Kanu.
“We’ve concluded plans with the security agencies on how to deal with anyone who tries to forment trouble on that day. We don’t want to see anyone wearing IPOB T-shirt or cap near the court premises that day.
“The person entitled to be at the court is Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyers only and the Federal Government Lawyers, also some government officials. That’s all. We don’t want the court to be over crowded on that day” the Attorney General of the Federation added.
