NIGERIAN HIGH COURT FIXES DATES FOR NNAMDI KANU’S BAIL HEARING

The Federal High Court in Abuja has fixed May 18 and 26 for the hearing on the bail application of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu appeared before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja on Friday in continuation of his trial.

Eight out of the fifteen counts filed against Kanu, bordering on terrorism and related offences, were earlier struck out by the court.

Mike Ozekhome (SAN), who led the IPOB leader’s defence team had asked for a bail application. Justice Nyako subsequently fixed May 18 and 26, 2022 for a hearing on the application.

She, however, said she would communicate with the legal team before the next seating regarding the proposal to move the venue of Kanu’s trial.

It would be recalled that Kanu’s supporters in a daring move on Friday stormed the premises of the court in solidarity with their leader despite the heavy security presence.

The supporters who converged on the Ministry of Justice area chanted solidarity songs. They vowed not to leave despite the effort by the gun-toting operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) and Nigerian police to drive them away.
