Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja has denied the bail application by the leader of the Indigenous People’s of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

The Judge held that Mr Kanu must account for his whereabouts over the years when he was first granted bail but refused to attend his trial.

The court disagreed with the defendant that he escaped out of the country when Nigerian armed soldiers allegedly invaded his ancestral home in Abia State.

Earlier, on Wednesday morning, the Federal Government had filed a six-count amended charge against Kanu.

 

Justice Nyako, however, berated the prosecution for filing the amended charge just hours before the ruling. She said she was not aware of the amended charge until she got to the court in the morning.

Kanu had in the application he filed pursuant to sections 6(6) and 36(5) and (6) of the 1999 Constitution, as amended, as well as sections 161, 162, 163 and 165 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, ACJA, 2015, prayed the court to release him on bail, pending by determination of the charge against him.
