Court strikes out six count charges against Nnamdi Kanu
Nnamdi Kanu in Court

A federal High Court in Abuja moments ago struck out newly amended sic count charges against Nnamdi Kanu.

The court struck out the charges against Nnamdi Kanu after the Federal Government withdrew the six count amended charges leveled against him.

The withdrawal came after Kanu’s Lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), complained that the prosecution was trying to delay processes by continuous amendment of the charge against his client.

Ozekhome told the court that it was the seventh time the FG was amending its charge.

Justice Binta Nyako concurred with Ozekhome’s submission stating that Kanu was not expected to take a plea on those newly amended charges immediately, as he needed time to digest them before doing so.
