Opara told The Nation “My annoyance is not about 15 worthless and empty amended charges, but it is just a calculated attempt to delay the trial and have an excuse to further incarcerate MNK (Maxi Nnamdi Kanu) in solitary confinement.

“Imagine, since the last adjourned date, more than two months now, they did not deem it necessary to amend, file, and serve us, but waited till today (yesterday) for them to do that with their ultimate intention to frustrate the trial tomorrow (today). “Anyway, we shall sort it out with them in court.”
