IPOB’s Nnamdi Kanu Spits Fire As Judge Denies Him Bail

Detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has said he cannot be tried by any court in Nigeria.

Kanu today Monday had two applications denied by the Federal High Court in Abuja, in one of which he requested bail.

In the other, the IPOB leader demanded relocation from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), where he is now detained, to Kuje jail.

Angered 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.

Justice Nyako held that she found as a fact that Kanu jumped the 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.

According to the Judge, her court perused the said judgment of the Supreme Court, but could not locate the claim made by the defence lawyer.

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

Ruling on Monday, May 20, Justice Binta Nyako held that issues raised in both applications had earlier been pronounced on by her court and rejected.

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by defence lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor that the Supreme Court held that the earlier bail granted him ought not to have been revoked.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

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