BREAKING: Court Dismisses Nnamdi Kanu’s Bail Application

The Abuja division of the Federal High Court has dismissed an application by the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, seeking an order discharging the earlier order revoking his bail.

Justice Binta Nyako in her ruling on Tuesday,  said the suit was an attempt to continue to litigate on issues that have already been ruled on.

She accordingly dismissed the application for being an abuse of court process, adding that Kanu has not provided sufficient reasons to warrant the court to set aside its order.

The court however, advised the applicant to approach the Court of Appeal on the issue of bail, should he feel aggrieved by the decision of the court.

In the dismissed application which was filed by his lead counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Kanu  prayed for an order setting aside the order made on March 28, 2019, directing for his arrest and continuation of his trial in absentia.

Justice Nyako had, on March 28, 2019,  ordered Kanu’s arrest and revoked hiscbail. 

Nyako, who  directed that his trial should continue in his absence, had  ruled that the court gave the order because Kanu failed to appear in court after his bail was granted on April 25, 2017.
