BEVERLY HILLS, April 25, (THEWILL) – Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has rejected the bail granted him by Justice Binta Nyako of the federal high court, Abuja.
There were wild celebrations in the South-East and some South-South states at the news of Kanu’s bail which was short-lived when the conditions of his release became clear.
Justice Nyako had granted Kanu bail on health grounds ruling that he must produce three sureties, including a highly respected and recognised Jewish leader, a highly placed person of Igbo extraction such as a Senator, as well as a highly respected person who is resident and owns landed property in Abuja.
Each of the sureties are to deposit N100 million.
But Kanu has reportedly rejected the order for his conditional release saying he will not accept the bail until other persons he was charged with, messers Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi, are granted bail as well.
Kanu has been in Kuje prisons, Abuja since 2015 in detention by the Department of State Security (DSS) and is facing trial for alleged treasonable felony.
