A member of Nnamdi Kanu’s legal team has demanded an unreserved apology from an International Television News network, Al-jazeera.

On Wednesday, the popular Television channel broadcast that the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, admitted guilt in the allegations of terrorism leveled against him.

But the Mr. Kanu through his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, in a social media post, said that was not a true presentation of what transpired in the court.

He stressed that the IPOB leader pleaded not-guilty to all the 15 counts of the charge brought before the court by the federal government.

Nnamdi Kanu was on Wednesday rearraigned after the government amended the charge, leading to a fresh plea.

The trial of the Mr. Kanu since he was arrested and returned to Nigeria in June last year, had seen a few setbacks with allegations of unfair treatment by the Department of State Services.

On the last adjourned date, Justice Binta Nyako ordered that the suspect must not appear before the court again in the same cloth he had won for seven months since he was arrested.

The court also ordered that he must be provided with beddings and given access to his clothing.

The court directed that he be allowed to practice his faith without any restriction.

The next date for trial was fixed for the 16th of February.
