Other counts left are alleged conspiracy to commit treasonable felony, treasonable felony, publication of defamatory matter, improper importation of goods and illegal possession of fire arms‎.

Nyako said the prosecutor did not present any evidence.

Ruling on the preliminary objection, the trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako struck out six of the counts on ground that there was no evidence in the proof of evidence filed by the prosecution.

Soludo said the meeting was part of the outcome of a visit to Kanu and his associates now in detention at the Kuje prison as part of a worldwide consultation process on the peace and development of Alaigbo/Nigeria.

The other defendants are: David Nwawuisi, Benjamin Madubugwu and Chidiebere Onwudiwe, identified as the 2nd, 3rd and 4th defendants respectively.

The judge held that the allegation in Count 7 accusing Madubugwu of "managing of unlawful society punishable under section 63 of the Criminal Code Act" by accepting and keeping a container housing the radio transmitter which he allegedly knew was to be used for Radio Biafra, also did not disclose any element of the alleged crime.

Consequently, the trial Judge, Justice Binta Nyako struck out six of the counts and upheld five.

The judge also struck out counts six, seven, nine, 10 and 11 while sustaining counts one, two, four, five and eight of the charges, which the prosecution had placed before the court.

She struck out six of the charges.

In count three of the remaining charges, FG alleged that Kanu had in a broadcast he made in London on April 28, 2015, through Radio Biafra, referred to President Muhammadu Buhari as "a paedophile, a terrorist, an idiot and an embodiment of evil".

The court later adjourned till March 20 and 21 for continuation of trial.

He urged the government to obey the ruling in good fate, stressing that the development would open a window for more negotiations.

He argued that his client has not committed any offence by agitating for Biafra.

Leader of MASSOB, Uchenna Madu said in a short statement that the group would always press for the release of Kanu and other agitators being held in various prisons across the country.
