Human Rights Lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), will now lead the delegation of lawyers representing the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

One of the counsels for the IPOB Leader, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, confirmed this to journalists on Tuesday just before Kanu’s trial commenced.

The trial commenced amid heavy security presence.

The Federal Government had on Monday filed fresh terrorism charges against the detained IPOB leader before the Federal High Court.

Nnamdi Kanu will now enter his fresh plea to a 15-count amended charge signed by the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, Mohammed Abubakar.

He has been in the custody of the Department of State Security Service since his alleged arrest and deportation from Kenya on July 2021.
