He also asked the judge, Binta Nyako, to dismiss the newly-amended charges of seven counts.
Kanu was charged with terrorism, treason and perpetuation of falsehoods against President Muhammadu Buhari, mainly through broadcasts on the controversial Radio Biafra outlet and also through social media. He had pleaded not guilty during his last trial on October 21, 2021.
Tthe President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Professor Obiozor, had appointed Ezeife to lead the Ohanaeze delegation to the trial of Kanu.
