The Federal tribunal sitting in abuja, on wednesday, declined to grant bail to the detained leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, pending the determination of the treasonable felony charge the national preferred against him.
Trial Justice Binta Nyako held that Kanu should make a case for the reason why he broken the previous bail that was given to him, before he could enjoy another favourable discretion from the court.
“Until the issue of absence of the defendant for his trial, with all the bail conditions breached, is determined, the instant application of the defendant for bail will at best be premature and it’s refused.
“However, the defendant is at liberty to refile the application”, Justice Nyako held.
The court noted that Kanu’s trial had since 2015, suffered various setbacks owing to over nineteen interlocutory applications that are filed in the matter.
It, therefore, implored the parties to allow the case to proceed on trial to alter the charge to be determined, one way or the other.
