Why Court Again Denies Kanu’s Bail Application


The Abuja Federal High Court, has again denied the leader of the famous Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu’s bail.

According to the Court, it was disclosed that, Kanu was earlier granted bail in 2017 and jumped the bail, noting that, the Court must first determine the real reason, he jumped the bail before he could reapply for another one.

Also in another development, the Judge, Abuja Federal High Court, Justice Binta Nyako disclosed that, Kanu’s move was dismissed based on the charge, which upheld seven counts in the fresh charge filed by the Federal Government against the IPOB leader.

Nyako reiterated that, the Federal Government, through the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), had been able to establish some allegations against Kanu in counts one, two, three, four, five, eight, and 15.

He therefore, ordered that, counts six, seven, nine, 10, 11, 12 13 and 14 should be struck out.

Nyako also restated that, the order prescribing IPOB as a terror group still subsisted until it was vacated since the issue was still on appeal.

The Judge also disclosed that, rendition for the purpose of criminal investigation was allowed.

He therefore noted that, since Kanu was on bench warrant, the law allowed that anywhere he was sighted, he could be arrested and be brought to face his trial

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) however reported that, the Court had, on April 8, exonerated the Federal Government on the allegation that, the leader of the IPOB was forcefully abducted abroad to stand his trial.
