BREAKING: Court declines Nnamdi Kanu’s fresh bail request

AFederal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a fresh bail application brought by the detained leader of the proscribed separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Justice Binta Nyako, in a ruling on Tuesday, March 19, held that the court cannot grant Kanu bail on the fresh application having rejected an earlier one.

Justice Nyako was of the view that the only option opened to Nnamdi was for him to appeal the earlier decision of the court refusing him bail.

Kanu is being tried on a seven-count bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism-related offences.

The trial resumed following the December 15, 2023 judgment of the Supreme Court, which voided the earlier judgment by the Court of Appeal, freeing Kanu.
