Justice Binta Nyako of the federal high court, Abuja, has dismissed six of the 11 count charges brought against castrated leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, by the federal government.
Greennews.ng gathered that the dismissed charges included “ownership of unlawful society, illegal importation of radio transmitters and researching on how to make improvised explosive devices”.
Nyako hinged her decision on grounds that the prosecutor did not present any evidence.
However, the Judge held that Kanu would be re-arraigned on a five count of treasonable felony.
It will be recalled that eminent personalities including Chukwuma Soludo, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN); Patrick Utomi, a professor of economics, and some Igbo leaders called for the immediate release of Kanu, describing his trial as persecution.
