Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja, on Tuesday morning adjourned the trial of the detained leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to January 19.
The adjournment followed Kanu’s objection to the fresh amended charge filed against him by the Federal Government.
Nnamdi Kanu’s counsel, Mike Ozekhome SAN accused the Federal Government of ambushing his client with the new charge.

In view of the foregoing, the defence counsel pleaded for an adjournment to enable him have ample time to have full grasp of the charge.
The Federal Government’s lawyer, Shuaibu Labaran did not oppose Ozekhome’s application for an adjournment.
Meanwhile, Justice Nyako has adjouned to Wednesday January 19, for Kanu to enter his plea based on the fresh charge.
Kanu is presently being prosecuted by the Federal Government over alleged treasonable felony, terrorism and other related offences.
