In the aftermath of  Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader and Radio Biafra director Nnamdi Kanu’s release from DSS custody, and the transfer of his case to a higher court, it has been reported that a Federal High Court in Abuja last Friday leveled six charges of treasonable felony against him.

The charges have also been leveled against two other individuals named Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi, Sun reports.

Reports state that the charge-sheet reads in part:

    Nonsense. FG should obey their own law first before charging them for another allegation.

    Please let’s not go this route. There should be mediation and dialogue. Firstly, how can peace reign?Do these guys need reorientation? Are they being hurt or getting something wrong? Felony route breeds war sometimes. I think that route can be dangerous considering what we are going through as a nation.
