Court rejects Nnamdi Kanu’s Bail Application

The Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed the application for bail by the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

In her decision on Tuesday, Justice Binta Nyako stated that the lawsuit was an egregious misuse of the legal system and an attempt to extend a legal battle over matters that have already been decided.

However, if the petitioner felt wronged by the court’s judgment, she recommended he appeal the matter to the Court of Appeal.

According to the trial judge, there have been 15 adjournments in the case since Nnamdi Kanu was granted bail in July 2017 and no substantive hearing has taken place as of yet.

She added that she was not satisfied with the reason the IPOB leader gave for his failure to appear in court for the continuation of his trial.

Justice Nyako stated that from the records of the court, Kanu was represented by his lawyer on the day his bail was revoked, likewise his sureties and he has never been denied a fair hearing.

She held that a court could vacate a previous order when confronted with a cogent and verifiable reason.

In the trial judge’s words, “In the instant case, I have not been given any, neither have I been given any reason to set aside the order.”

She insists 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.
Tuesday’s ruling comes three months after the court declined to release the embattled IPOB leader on bail on March 18.
