BREAKING: Federal High Court rejects Nnamdi Kanu’s bail request, denies transfer to Kuje prison

The Federal High Court has dismissed Nnamdi Kanu’s plea for bail and his request to be transferred to Kuje prison.

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court delivered the ruling, denying Kanu’s appeals for bail restoration and a transfer to Kuje prison. 

The judge reiterated previous concerns over Kanu’s evasion of justice, citing his escape from the country and the inability of his sureties to locate him as key factors in the decision.

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disagreed with Kanu’s lead counsel that the Supreme Court held that the earlier bail granted him ought not to have been revoked, adding that she had perused the Supreme Court judgment copy and did not see the claim of the lawyer.

Meanwhile, a video shared by Channels TV shows Kanu shouting on top of his voice, insisting not to stand trial before any court in Nigeria.

He claimed that any attempt to put him on trial would amount to a breach of Nigeria’s Constitution and the international laws.
