JUST IN: See What Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer Did And Said After Court Denied IPOB Leader Bail (Details below)



Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has been denied bail by an Abuja Federal High Court. Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, has reacted.

A recent court order by an Abia State High Court sitting in Umuahia, according to Ejimakor, will have an impact on Justice Binta Nyako’s decision.

The Special Counsel told Newsmen that the judgement of the Umuahia-led court is the only foundation on which the Abuja ruling will be implemented.

On Wednesday, Kanu’s bail plea was dismissed by Justice Nyako.

Kanu was ordered to explain where he was when he skipped bail in 2017.

Reacting, Ejimakor said: “She denied the bail application, but she also ruled that Kanu can reapply for bail with an explanation of why he did not attend court in 2017. This is where the Umuahia judgment will come into play.

“The initial bail application (the one denied today) was filed before the Umuahia judgment that impliedly exonerated Kanu from the notion that he had jumped bail in 2017.

“Very significant. It’s the only basis upon which the new bail application can proceed.”
