The Nigerian government has amended the seven counts of terrorism against Nnamdi Kano, the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB.
The government has brought the amended seven counts of terrorism charges against Kano.
The amended charge marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015, which was filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja, contained all the allegations against Kano that were upheld by the court earlier.
The federal government said in a radio broadcast that Kano had issued a mortal threat that anyone violating the IPOB’s home sit-in order in the Southeast must write his or her will.
The government alleged that in 2018, Kanu broadcast a number of radio stations that incited its members to kill security personnel and their families.
She noted that this crime is punishable under Article 1 (2) (h) of the Terrorism Prevention Amendment Act of 2013.
