Send Nnamdi Kanu back to jail, FG tells Court

Ohanaeze condemns move to re-arrest Nnamdi Kanu, accuses FG of favouring Northerners

The Federal Government has asked the court to revoke the bail granted leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

According to a statement by the office of the Attorney General, Abubakar Malami, on Friday, the Nigerian government also asked the court to order the arrest and detention of Mr. Kanu, pending the determination of the charge against him.

The statement which was signed by special assistant to Mr. Malami, Salihu Isah, cited disobedience of court orders, among other issues as grounds for the appeal.

The Federal Government argued that the IPOB leader had not only breached the conditions attached to his bail but had conducted himself in manners that threaten public peace. recalls that Justice Binta Nyako had given stringent conditions that the embattled leader must abide by before and after leaving the prison premises. She particularly barred him (Kanu) from granting interviews, and being in gatherings of more than 10 persons, when she granted the IPOB leader bail.
