Revoke Nnamdi Kanu’s Bail FG Urge’s Court
Comments Off on Revoke Nnamdi Kanu’s Bail FG Urge’s Court | | August 26, 2017 10:50 AM

The Federal Government has asked the court to revoke the bail granted to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

The government cited disobedience of the bail conditions granted to Kanu as part of the reasons for its request.

The Government made the call in an application it filed at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

In a Motion On Notice, the government is seeking an order of the court “revoking the bail granted to the 1st defendant (Kanu) on 25th April 2017”.

It is also seeking an order of the court “directing the arrest and committing the 1st defendant to custody pending trial”.

Kanu is standing trial for conspiracy to commit acts of treasonable felony, treasonable felony and other related offences at the court, offences that the government said are not ordinarily bailable.

The government also said the IPOB leader had violated the terms of his bail conditions, which include that he should not be seen in a crowd exceeding 10 people; he should not grant any interviews, hold or attend any rallies; and that he should file in court medical updates of his health status every month.

Other grounds for the government’s application are that “rather than observing all of the conditions listed above, the 1st defendant in flagrant disobedience to the court order flouted all conditions of the bail; the first defendant has in furtherance to the offence (for which) he was charged, inaugurated Biafra Security Service; and that such an act is a grave threat to national security and unity of the country”.
