The Federal High Court in Abuja has rescheduled the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, for April 8, 2022.
Kanu appeared before Justice Binta Nyako today regarding a 15-count charge levied against him by the federal government.
Kanu had previously pleaded not guilty to the 15-count amended charge of treasonable felony and terrorism brought against him.
Last Tuesday, the IPOB leader filed a preliminary objection questioning the competence of the new charge as well as the court’s jurisdiction to hear the case.

According to the defendant, the new charge brought against him was baseless and worthless, and it could not stand up to the test of the law, so it should be dismissed.

Kanu made the submission through his lead counsel, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, shortly after his arraignment and plea.
Meanwhile, Mike Ozekhome, complained to the court that the DSS had refused to allow Kanu to change his clothes. He went on to say that Kanu’s younger brother had been denied access to the DSS facility where Kanu was detained three times.
The lead counsel also expressed regret that Kanu’s eyeglass had been seized by the DSS and had not been returned to him since his arrest and detention. He requests that his glasses be returned to him so that he will not go blind.
