President Muhammadu Buhari-led government on Friday disclosed that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, will be facing fresh charges.
The Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, stated this while speaking with journalists in Abuja.
Malami disclosed that the new charges will incorporate fresh allegations against the IPOB leader.
The current charges levelled against Kanu at the Federal High Court in Abuja border on terrorism, treasonable felony, unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society.
The Minister, however, noted that Kanu since 2017 when he jumped bail had more offences.
“He has, upon jumping bail, been accused of engaging in subversive activities that include inciting violence through television, radio and online broadcasts against Nigeria and Nigerian State and institutions.”
“Kanu was also accused of instigating violence especially in Southeast Nigeria which resulted in the loss of lives and property of civilians, military, paramilitary, police forces and destruction of civil institutions and symbols of authorities,” Malami said
