Court rejects Nnamdi Kanu’s bail application

The application, seeking an order setting aside the 2017 order revoking his bail for alleged abscondment from the trial, filed by the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has again been dismissed by the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Monday.

The Informant247 gathered that Justice Binta Nyako, in her ruling, also rejected Kanu’s request to be transferred to Kuje Custodial Centre in the event that his application for an order vacating the revocation order of his bail was overruled, saying the only option left for him was to appeal the ruling.

The judge held that any further application on this ground would be regarded as an abuse of court process.

“I have found and held that the present place of applicant’s detention is a proper place.

“Any further application will be regarded as an abuse of the court process,” she said.

Justice Nyako then ordered Kanu to enter his trial while adjourning the matter until June 19 and June 20 for trial commencement.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the judge had, on April 17, fixed today for ruling on the defendant’s application to either vacate the bail revocation, be put under house arrest or be transferred to Kuje Custodial Centre.
