Ifeanyi Ejiofor, consul to the defendant made this known during the hearing of the Federal Government vs Nnamdi Kanu legal battle at the Federal High Court, Abuja, today.
According to Ejiofor,
“Nnamdi Kanu is a freedom fighter not a terrorist; unlike other coup plotters who take over power from the leadership in this country through violence, Kanu is a freedom fighter.
“The offence for which Nnamdi Kanu is being tried is less than the 1983 coup d’etat which led to the enthronement of President Buhari as military head of state.
“There is no ingredients of treasonable felony found in the proof of evidence before this court.”
