BREAKING: COURT REJECTS NNAMDI KANU’S BAIL APPLICATION

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday morning denied the bail application of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

In his ruling, Justice Binta Nyako, said the issue of Kanu’s absence in the past, since 2017, should be determined, before his bail application, will be entertained.

She added that Kanu breached his former bail conditions, and until that is heard, his present bail application is immature.
