I’m not guilty -Nnamdi Kanu pleads to a seven-count amended charge
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has pleaded not guilty to the seven-count amended charge preferred against him by the Federal Government.
Kanu was on Thursday re-arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, and said he was innocent of all the allegations levelled against him after the charge was read to him in the open court.
The Department of State Services, DSS, refused to allow even a single journalist inside the courtroom during the Kanu’s re-arraignment, based on “orders from above”.
Heavily armed security personnel had denied journalists, lawyers, and supporters of the IPOB leader access to the courtroom where the trial is going on.
They made it clear that no Journalist would be allowed to enter the courtroom till the end of the proceedings.
“You people can go to your press centre and wait till the end of the matter, after then, you will receive a briefing on what happened,” one of the operatives told journalists who were pleading to be allowed into the courtroom.
However, a source inside the courtroom, disclosed that the embattled IPOB leader pleaded not guilty to the amended charge.
