Nnamdi Kanu denied being an IPOB member, says Nigeria govt

Nigerian government lawyer Shuaibu Labaran Magaji told the media on the court premises after the Nnamdi Kanu trial was extended that Nnamdi Kanu denied being a member of IPOB.

The case which was held on Wednesday had Magaji, who brought two prosecution witnesses to court on Wednesday, expressed the disappointment that the trial could not begin immediately.

He noted that the defence team ambushed the court with an application for bail and another application seeking to quash the charges against Kanu.

Magaji added that Kanu “vehemently” denied being an IPOB member.

He said, “One of the charges suggesting that the defendant, Nnamdi Kanu is a member of IPOB and he vehemently denied being a member of IPOB. That is very curious and we urge Nigerians to see us through how we are going to prove all those charges against the defendant in no time to come.”

Kanu is currently facing 15 amended charges bordering on terrorism. He pleaded not guilty to all 15 counts read to him on Wednesday.
