Breaking News: Court denies Nnamdi Kanu bail!

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu was on Friday 29th January, denied bail by the federal high court, Abuja. The judge John Tsoho ruled that Kanu was a threat to national security, and as a result would not be granted bail. He held that if released Kanu might commit the same offence again, and that there was a probability that he might jump bail because he possessed dual citizenship. He therefore ruled that Kanu be remanded in prison custody, and ordered an accelerated hearing of the case.

Meanwhile, there was mild drama at the court over legal representation for Kanu. Kanu had written a letter to the judge, stating that his lawyers were only Chuks Muoma(SAN) and Ifeanyi Ejiofor, excluding Udechukwu, who argued his bail application, and Vincent Obetta, the counsel, who had represented him since the beginning of his trial at the chief magistrate court, Wuse zone 2, Abuja. In protest, Udechukwu announced that he was standing down, and asked the court to strike out his name as Kanu’s counsel. 

But Muoma, in order not to stall the ruling, asked Justice Tsoho to rule on the defendant’s bail application even though Udechukwu, who argued it had pulled out. The judge thereafter delivered the ruling refusing Kanu bail
