Biafra: Why court adjourned Nnamdi Kanu’s trial to October

No Comments

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has adjourned the ongoing trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

DAILY POST reliably gathered from a source that the court adjourned the ongoing trial of the IPOB leader to October 17 because it's on "recess."

Kanu alongside three others: David Nwawuisi, Benjamin Madubugwu and Chidiebere Onwudiwe are facing treasonable charges before the Justice Binta Nyako-led court.

Recall that the Justice Nyako, who had in Aprilgranted Kanu bail on health grounds with 12 conditions, and had fixed today for continuation of the trial.

Justice Nyako in her ruling had listed the bail conditions to include, "Produce three sureties and two of whom must be; (a) highly respected and recognized Jewish leader and (b) highly placed Igbo person such as a Senator. The third surety must be resident in Abuja with a landed property in the same Abuja. Above all, the three sureties must deposit one hundred million naira (N100million) each.

"Barred from attending any rally and granting any form of interview.

"Must not be in a crowd exceeding 10 persons.

"Must surrender his British and Nigerian passports even when these passports are still in the custody of the DSS.

"Must sign an undertaking to avail himself for trial at all times."

However, the IPOB leader is seen to have flouted some of the bail conditions, as has since been addressing the press and seen in company of more than 10 people.

IPOB has, however, dismissed reports of Kanu flouting his bail conditions.
