A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has refused two applications by the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu seeking to be granted bail as well as relocation from Department of State Services (DSS) to Kuje prison.

In a ruling today on May 20, Justice Binta Nyako  said that the two issues being sought for  had earlier been rejected by her in an earlier application by the applicant.

According to Justice Nyako the applicant had jumped bail earlier granted to him and escaped from the country.

The judge noted that those, who stood surety for Kanu when the earlier bail was granted, later applied to be discharged and were discharged because they could not locate Kanu and did not know his whereabouts.

Justice Nyako has opined that the only option opened to Kanu was for him to approach the Court of Appeal on the issues.

Justice Nyako rejected the argument by defence lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor that the Supreme Court held that the earlier bail granted him ought not to have been revoked.

The judge held that she perused the said judgment of the Supreme Court, but could not locate the claim made by the defence lawyer.

Jolted by the judge’s pronouncement, Kanu began to shout from the dock and protested that he would not stand trial before any court in Nigeria.

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