The request filed by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to restore his revoked bail and removal from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) has been dismissed by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The Judge on Monday said that the same request had been brought before her by Kanu but was dismissed for want of merit.

In a ruling on Kanu’s request, Justice Nyako said that she found as a fact that Kanu jumped the bail earlier granted him and escaped out of the country.

The Judge also held that the sureties who stood for him 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 said that the only option left for Kanu was to go to the Court of Appeal and exercise his right of appeal.

The Judge disagreed with Kanu’s lead counsel that the Supreme Court held that the earlier bail granted him ought not to have been revoked, adding that she had perused the Supreme Court judgment copy and did not see the claim of the lawyer.

Dailypost reports that as of the time of this report, Kanu is shouting on top of his voice, insisting not to stand trial before any court in Nigeria.

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