Court refuses to grant Nnamdi Kanu’s request on bail, removal from DSS custody

The request made by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Biafra nation agitators, to have his revoked bail restored and be moved from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) to either house arrest or prison custody has been dismissed by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

On Monday, the judge stated that Nnamdi Kanu had previously brought the same request before her, but it was dismissed due to lack of merit.

Justice Nyako, in her ruling on Kanu’s request, stated that she found it to be a fact that Kanu had indeed jumped the bail that was previously granted to him and had escaped out of the country.

The Judge also held that the sureties who stood for him in the earlier bail had applied to be discharged and had been discharged on the ground that they could not locate Kanu and did not know his whereabouts.

Justice Nyako said that the only option left for Kanu was to go to the Court of Appeal and exercise his right of appeal.

The Judge disagreed with Kanu’s lead counsel that the Supreme Court held that the earlier bail granted him ought not to have been revoked, adding that she had perused the Supreme Court judgment copy and did not see the claim of the lawyer.
