Nnamdi Kanu arrives court in handcuffs

The bail applications filed by leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and three others with whom he is being prosecuted by the FG for offences including treasonable felony and an act preparatory to act of terrorism, has been dismissed by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

Justice Binta Nyako held that they were not deserving as most of the charges preferred against were “ordinarily not bailable”. Justice John Tsoho, who was handling the case before Kanu accused him of bias, had also refused to grant bail to the accused persons.

The case was transferred to Justice Nyako on the account of Kanu’s allegation and all the accused were re-arraigned before the judge on November 8. Ruling on Thursday, Kustice Nyako held that she had no reason to “deviate” from the earlier “findings” of Justice Tsoho.

Justice Nyako ruled on Thursday that though the case started de novo (afresh) before her, there were no new facts and circumstances that could warrant her to grant bail to the accused as the charges preferred against them were “serious offences”
She said as alternative to granting bail to the defendants, she prefer to order accelerated hearing of the case.
