The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has pleaded not guilty to a seven-count amended charge bordering on alleged treasonable felony and terrorism preferred against him by the Federal Government. Kanu, who was rearraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court Abuja said he was innocent of all the allegations levelled against him by the federal government when the charge was read in the open court. After taking of plea, his counsel Ifeanyi Ejiofor quickly applied for his bail which was countered by the prosecution counsel on the grounds that the defendant is facing a criminal offence. The judge however adjourned till November 10 for hearing of the bail application. Defence Counsel provided more light into on what happened in the court room. Meanwhile, journalists were barred from covering the matter by operatives from the Department of State Service.
