The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has pleaded not guilty to the seven amended charges preferred against him by the Federal Government.
When the charges were read to him by the trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako, Mazi Kanu, who was re-arraigned at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday, said he was innocent of all the allegations levelled against him.
The judge then adjourned the case to November 10 to hear his application, challenging the competence of the charges.
Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, spoke to newsmen shortly after the case was adjourned.
Reports say that the court refused Mazi Kanu’s application for transfer to Kuje Correctional Centre from the DSS facility where he has been held.
