A Federal High Court, Abuja on Thursday fixed November 10 for hearing the application of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, challenging the competency of the charge preferred against him by the Federal Government Justice Binta Nyako fixed the date after the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) filed a fresh seven-count charge against Kanu.

The judge also made an order that three people of Kanu’s choice should be allowed to visit him every Thursday.

However, Kanu’s plea to be transferred to Kuje Correctional Centre was rejected by the court.

Earlier, the DSS brought Kanu into the courtroom on the fifth floor of the high-rise building about 9:45 am in the company of heavily armed security agents.

The Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation on Monday filed a fresh charge against Kanu bordering on treasonable felony and acts of terrorism.

Kanu is facing charges bordering on treasonable felony.

He had been granted bail in April 2017 for health reasons but skipped bail after flouting some of the conditions given to him by the court.

He later left Nigeria after soldiers raided his father’s residence in Abia state in November 2017.

IPOB was subsequently declared a terrorist group by the defence headquarters and court after the southeast governors proscribed it.
