Photos: Nnamdi Kanu Appears in Court as Judge Exempts Self From Hearing Treason Charges

Following a fresh six-count charges filed by the Federal Government of Nigeria against the embattled Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu appeared before Justice Ahmed Mohammed-led Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja, on Wednesday.

Kanu was charged before the Federal High Court, Abuja alongside two others, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi in a fresh six-count charge of treason and managing the affairs of ‘an unlawful society.’ The government is accusing Mr. Kanu of plotting to split Nigeria, by creating a Biafra Republic with south east, south south states, and parts of Kogi and Benue states, as component units.

However, Justice Mohammed exempted himself from hearing the case after Mr. Kanu objected to the case, arguing that it was needless, as the federal government had repeatedly disobeyed previous court rulings. Read earlier report here
