BREAKING NEWS: Nnamdi Kanu Denied Bail

The hopes of the many members of IPOB (Indiginous People of Biafra) who had believed that their Director would be granted bail today. ‎Justice John Tsoho presiding over a Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday denied Nnamdi Kanu bail.

According to his judgement, he ruled that Kanu could not be granted bail because he had not renounced the reason for which he was being prosecuted by the Federal Government. According to Justice Tsoho, he agreed with the prosecutions position that if the accused were released, they could interfere with the process by intimidating the prosecuting witnesses.

The Justice also ruled that the cases brought against Nnamdi Kanu and two others were valid and not trumped up as presented by the defence. Further, the fact that Nnamdi Kanu possesses dual citizenship increases he chances of jumping bail.

As a concession to the defendant, the Justice ordered an accelerated hearing of the case which he adjourned to run through February 9, 10, 11 and 12.

Nnamdi Kanu, David Nwawusi and Benjamin Madubugwu will be remanded in Kuje prison throughout the trial.
