ABUJA – In a significant legal development, the Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a fresh bail request from Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Justice Binta Nyako rejected Kanu's plea for bail and a change in custody during a hearing on Monday, citing previous rulings on similar issues.

Kanu, who is currently detained by the Department of State Services (DSS), sought the reinstatement of his bail after it was previously revoked due to his absence from court proceedings which was after the invasion of his country home by the Nigerian Military. Additionally, he requested to be transferred from DSS custody to either house arrest or a conventional prison.

In her ruling, Justice Nyako emphasized that Kanu had previously jumped bail and fled the country, which led to the discharge of his sureties who were unable to ensure his appearance in court. She underscored that Kanu’s appropriate legal recourse would be to appeal to a higher court.

Moreover, Justice Nyako refuted claims by Kanu's legal team that the Supreme Court had mandated the reinstatement of his earlier bail. After reviewing the Supreme Court’s judgment, she found no such directive.

Kanu has reportedly expressed his refusal to stand trial in any Nigerian court, arguing that doing so would contravene both Nigerian and international law.

The decision represents a continued legal challenge for Kanu and members of the self determination group, who have long sought his release and a change in the conditions of his detention.
