On Friday, December 18, after a court’s order that Kanu should be released immediately and unconditionally, the Nigerian government filed fresh charges against the Biafra agitator.
The six-count charges bordering on illegal possession of arms and treasonable felony is expected to be heard before Justice A. R. Mohammed.
