The Federal Government has amended the seven-count terrorism charges against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
The amended charge marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015, was presented before the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The suit contained all allegations against Kanu that were earlier sustained by the Court.
The Federal Government said Kanu in a broadcast had issued a deadly threat that anyone who flouted IPOB’s sit-at-home order in the South-East should write his or her will.
The FG also claimed that in 2018, Kanu severally made broadcasts that incited his members to kill security operatives and families, which is punishable under Section 1 (2) (h) of the Terrorism Prevention Amendment Act, 2013.
