The Nigerian Government has filed fresh terrorism charges against detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu ahead of Tuesday's trial.

According to the amended process it filed before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, the Nigerian Government increased the counts in the initial charge it preferred against Kanu.

The IPOB leader, who was hitherto facing a seven-count treasonable felony charge, will now enter his fresh plea to a 15-count amended charge marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015 and signed by Director of Public Prosecution, M.B Abubakar.

This amended charge came barely 24 hours to the scheduled commencement of hearing by Justice Binta Nyako.

Some of the new charges against Mr. Kanu is the importation of radio transmitter which was concealed in household items in 2015.

The court had on December 2, 2021 fixed Tuesday to hear some pending applications including the one Kanu filed to be discharged and acquitted.
