A federal high court in Abuja on Tuesday has ruled on application for bail filed by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court rejected Kanu’s application seeking to grant him bail
Binta Nyako in her ruling on Tuesday, described the application as an abuse of court process having been previously denied.
The IPOB leader sought the court’s permission to discharge the earlier order revoking his bail.
Justice Binta Nyako in her ruling stated that Kanu has not provided sufficient reasons to warrant the court to set aside its order.
She accordingly dismissed the application for being an abuse of court process.
Kanu was re-arraigned on an amended 15-count charge bordering on treasonable felony.
However, on April 8, the judge struck out eight of the 15-count charge.
While counts 6,7,9,10,11,12,13 and 14 were struck out, the defendant is to stand trial on counts 1,2,3,4,5,8 and 15.
