Federal High Court In Abuja Rejects Nnamdi Kanu’s Bail Application

The Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed the application for bail by Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). In her ruling on Tuesday, Justice Binta Nyako, said the suit was a gross abuse of the court process and an attempt to continue to litigate on issues that have already been ruled on.

Speaking she said; “In the instant case, I have not been given any, neither have I been given any reason to set aside the order.”

She insisted that the IPOB leader must explain the reason why he breached the previous bail that was given to him before he could enjoy another favourable discretion from it.

The case was later adjourned until November 14 for mention and to await the outcome of Kanu’s appeal at the appellate court. The Justice’s ruling on Tuesday is coming a month after the court refused to release Nnamdi Kanu on bail on May 18.

Kanu was re-arraigned on an amended 15-count charge bordering on treasonable felony.

However, on April 8, the judge struck out eight of the 15-count charge. While counts 6,7,9,10,11,12,13 and 14 were struck out, the defendant is to stand trial on counts 1,2,3,4,5,8 and 15.
