A Federal High Court in Abuja, has dismissed the request by the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to restore his revoked bail and the removal from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), to a house arrest or prison custody.

Justice Binta Nyako in his ruling, said that the same request had been brought before her by Kanu, and dismissed for want of merit.

According to Justice Nyako, she found as a fact, that Kanu jumped the bail earlier granted him, and escaped out of the country.

Also, the Judge held that the sureties who stood for Nnamdi Kanu in the earlier bail, had applied to be discharged, and had been discharged on the ground that they could not locate Kanu and did not know his whereabouts.

Justice Nyako also stated that the only option left for Kanu was to go to the Court of Appeal and proceed to the appellate court to exercise his right of appeal.

The Judge however, disagreed with Kanu’s lead counsel, that the Supreme Court held that the earlier bail granted him, ought not to have been revoked.

Justice Nyako added that she had perused the Supreme Court judgment copy, and did not see the claim of the lawyer.

Biafra nation agitators leader also berated, insisting not to stand trial before any court in Nigeria.

He claimed that any attempt to put him on trial, would amount to a breach of Nigeria’s Constitution and international laws.
