The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Thursday, March 28, has issued a bench warrant for the re-arrest of the fugitive leaders of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
According to Premium Times reports: In a judgment presided over by Justice Binta Nyako that the court have revoked the bail previously granted to the IPOB leader.
It would be recalled that Kanu, who was charged to court for treasonable felony by the federal government, was in the course of trial granted bail on health ground aside other conditions on April 25, 2017.
However, Kanu went underground in September 2017 following the deployment of troops to the Southeast when his Umuahia country home was allegedly raided by soldiers.
The pro-Biafra separatist was later seen in Jerusalem on October 19.
Woko also raised heavy allegations against the duo among which was collecting money from Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Speaking at a press briefing in Enugu on Friday, March 23, aggrieved Nwoko also said Kanu had failed and was inconsequential to the movement.
Nyako also affirmed that the court had separated Kanu’s trial from other defendants since March 20, 2018, yet Kanu has continuously failed to appear before the court.
The presiding judge, therefore, adjourned Kanu’s trial to June 18 for continuation of trial.
