indigenous people of Biafra

Six of the eleven charges filed against the leader of separatist Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has been struck out by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday.
The court, presided by Justice Binta Nyako, struck out the seven charges because there was no evidence, and as such, the charges did not call for trial.
Mr Kanu was charged along with four other accused persons on eleven counts including publication of defamatory matter, managing an unlawful society, illegal possession of firearms, treasonable felony, terrorism and importation of goods improperly.However, Justice Nyako has struck out the charges related to improper importation of a radio transmitter, intention to manufacture a bomb and management of unlawful organisation.
Nyako stressed that in relation to the charge of management of an unlawful organisation, the prosecution failed to prove that the Indigenous people of Biafra was unlawful, unregistered or had been banned.
