The Federal Government has withdrawn the newly amended charge against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu on Wednesday, May 18, 2022.

Earlier, Kanu had been denied a bail application by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja on the grounds that his absence in the past, since 2017, should be determined, before a bail application, will be entertained.

The Federal government decided to stick with its previous charges of “criminal conspiracy, intimidation, and membership of an illegal organisation”  against Kanu after it had been struck out by justice Nyako, who stated she was unaware of an earlier amended charge until she got to the court in the morning.
