Alleged Treason: IPOB loyalist re-arraigned without Nnamdi Kanu
The four co-defendants of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu were on Tuesday brought before justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court Abuja.
Following Kanu’s absence from his trial, the judge had ordered that the trial of the co-defendants be severed from charges against Kanu.
The fresh arraignment followed an application by prosecution counsel, Magaji Labaran informing the court that a fresh information, which reduces the charges from five to three counts have been filed before the court.
The defendants, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi and Bright Chimezie pleaded not guilty to all three count-charges preferred against them.
Counsels to the defendants objected to the application on grounds that the application was filed and served out of time.
