COURT RULES ON KANU’S BAIL APPLICATION FRIDAY

Justice James Tsoho of a Federal High Court in Abuja has fixed Friday for ruling on a bail application filed by leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra and founder of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and two others with respect to the charges of treason preferred against him by the Federal Government.

Justice Tsoho adjourned for ruling after both the defence and the prosecution made counter submissions on the bail application on Monday.

The judge had on January 20 shortly after Kanu was arraigned along with two others – Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi – ordered the Department of State Service to release the accused persons for remand in Kuje Prison.

Kanu was until January 20 in the custody of the DSS since he was arrested in a Lagos hotel on October 14, 2015 with respect to his agitation and radio broadcast for the secession of the Republic of Biafra from Nigeria.
