Biafra: Court to rule on Kanu's fresh bail application April 25

Biafra: Court to rule on Kanu's fresh bail application April 25

Following the ruling by trial Justice Binta Nyako, three other pro-Biafra agitators, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi would get separate rulings in their bail application on the same date, Naij writes.

The court has also fixed April 6, 2017 to rule on Kanu's application seeking the variation of its order on witness protection. I don't see any case there.

According to Nyako, "I will not vary my order on protection of the security operatives, it is either they come wearing masks or we hear their testimonies behind the screen".

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch in Senate hearing

He reminded the court that kanu had been granted unconditional release by several courts including the Federal High Court, presided by Justice Ademola, but the Federal Government has failed to comply with the orders. Kanu no longer constitutes a security risk, and that the need to grant him bail is paramount.

They argued that if beyond the charges levelled against them, which at the first instance was not even known to law, there was any other reason for which they are denied bail, such reason should be brought before the court, otherwise, they should be admitted to bail.

The prosecutor, Mr Shuiabu Labaran, said that he was yet to file his reply to the processes filed by Ejiofor.
