Court Denies Nnamdi Kanu’s Bail, Strikes Out FG’s Amended Charge

 The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Wednesday, declined to grant bail to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, pending the determination of the treasonable felony charge the Federal Government preferred against him.

Trial Justice Binta Nyako held that Kanu must explain the reason why he breached the previous bail that was given to him, before he could enjoy another favourable discretion from the court.

A member of Kanu’s legal team, who craved anonymity, told NEWSMEN on Wednesday that FG had in the amended charge, listed some lawyers representing the embattled IPOB leader, including Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Mr. Maxwell Opara, as accomplices of the defendant.

FG, it was gathered, alleged that the said lawyers, were constantly in contact with Kanu, after he jumped bail and fled the country.

It will be recalled that Kanu was subsequently re-arrested and returned back to the country from Kenya, in controversial circumstance.

Trial Justice Binta Nyako had on April 8, struck out eight out of the 15-count treasonable felony charge FG preferred against Kanu.

UPDATED: Court strikes out FG’s amended charge against Kanu.

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday struck out a six-count amended charge brought against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

The judge threw away the fresh charges following its withdrawal by counsel to the Federal Government, Adamu Kaatu.

Citing the need for the government to open the trial of Kanu after years of delay, Kaatu opted to withdraw the new charges when it was discovered the trial cannot be opened when an amended charge is pending.

Apparently desperate that witnesses be called to give evidence against Kanu, the government lawyer hurriedly applied for the withdrawal which was not opposed by Mike Ozekhome (SAN) standing for the defendant.

Justice Nyako, in a brief ruling, struck out the amended charge to pave way for the Federal Government to open its case against Kanu.

GUYS, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Endy Edeson , you failed to add that the FG has withdrawn all the amended charges against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Again, u also failed to capture the reason Justice Binta gave by denying Mazi Nnamdi Kanu bail. She didn't base it on the treasonable felony but rather she based it on why he failed to obey the bail conditions granted to him earlier. For me the reason is very simple. The military invaded his home and I know you know what that means had it been he didn't Jakpa.
