    This is a joke taken too far – #NnamdiKanu’s lawyer tells FG following fresh charges filed

    Lawyer to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has described as a joke taken too far the decision of the Federal government to file fresh 15-count amended charges against Kanu barely 24 hours of his appearance in court is a ploy to delay the case.Kanu will enter a fresh plea to a 15-count charge marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015 and signed by Director of Public Prosecution, M.B Abubakar as it was filed yesterday.Reacting to this development, Ejiofor in a statement released, described the charges as a waste of legal procedures.His statement reads “I visited Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the company of Bar. Maxwell Opara and Prince Emmanuel Kanu, for a final brief on the level of our preparedness for tomorrow’s legal onslaught.The meeting also afforded us the opportunity to further brief Onyendu on a completely ridiculous 15-Count Amended Charge filed and served on us today, the 17th day of January 2022 on a matter already fixed for hearing of our Preliminary Objection tomorrow, the 18th day of January, 2022. What a joke!Today, we were served with a 15-Count Amended Charge filed by the Director of Public Prosecution of the Federation in respect of a case already scheduled tomorrow, for the hearing of our preliminary objection challenging the competence of the 7-Count Amended Charge.This is indeed a joke taken too far as the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) is now scouting for an opportunity to truncate tomorrow’s proceeding, knowing fully well that the smokescreen charge is dead on arrival.We wish to categorically point out with dismay, that this further Amended Charge is the WORST kind of abuse of legal process that we have encountered in the history of legal practice – either in Nigeria or anywhere in the world.This 15-Count Amended Charge was no doubt brought in bad faith and is aimed at needlessly prolonging proceedings in the cause. The same FGN that brought our Client to Court is needlessly initiating processes that will delay the trial.
