August 17, 2017 – FG Calls For IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu’s Arrest For Intentionally Breaching Bail Conditions By Boycotting Anambra Election

The Federal Government has urged a Federal High Court in Abuja to revoke the bail it granted leader of the pro-Biafra group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and return him to prison.

The government argued that Kanu has not only breached the conditions attached to the bail granted him on April 25 this year on health ground, he has allegedly conducted himself in manners that threaten public peace.

It cited Kanu’s alleged threat that elections would not hold in South East states until the Fed Govt conduct referendum on whether or not Biafra should secede and instances where the IPOB leader addressed crowd exceeding 10 and threatened civil disobedience, as against the court’s directive that he must not be seen in a crowd of over 10 people.

The government, in a counter-motion, dated August 1, 2017 filed by Magaji Labaran of the Federal Ministry of Justice, urged the court to dismiss an application by Kanu, seeking a review of the bail conditions.

It noted that not only had Kanu met the bail conditions and was enjoying the bail, it was an affront to the court’s authority for the IPOB leader to approach the court for the review of the bail conditions, having allegedly breached the conditions.

“The offence for which he (Kanu) is standing trial is not ordinarily bailable; the court, not withstanding, granted bail to the 1st defendant/applicant (Kanu) on health grounds on 25th April 2017.

“Among other conditions for the bail of the 1st defendant is that he should not be seen in a crowd exceeding 10 people; that he should not grant any interviews, hold or attend any rallies; that he should file, in court, medical updates of his health status every month. The bail conditions were perfected by the 1st defendant/applicant, which he is currently enjoying.

“Rather than observing all the conditions listed above, the 1st defendant, in fragrant disobedience to the court order, flouted all conditions given by the court.

“The 1st defendant equally incited his members to disrupt, disallow and boycott elections in South East states, starting with Anambra State gubernatorial election scheduled for November 18 if the Federal Government failed to hold referendum for the realisation of the state of Biafra.

“The 1st defendant has already declared the bail conditions given by the court unconstitutional before approaching this court with the application for variation. Rather than showing remorse for his actions, the 1st defendant approached this court with an application for a review of the same conditions for the bail which he grossly flouted.

“Considering the above, that the 1st applicant has violated the conditions on which the terms of his bail were premised, we urged this court to commit the defendant to prison by invoking the provision of Section 173(2)(B) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015.

“We categorically state that justice would have been denied the state by this court, if the state is not protected from the offences being perpetrated by the 1stdefendant/applicant, who is currently on bail,” the Fed Govt said.

Kanu and four other suspected IPOB members – Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi and Bright Chimezie – are being tried before the Federal High Court, Abuja on offences relating to conspiracy and treasonable felony.

  1. It will be the dumbest move for federal government to rearrest Mr. Kanu NNamdi for breaching his bail terms or conditions. I know one thing about my wayward brother-Kanu that he is a very smart and intelligent individual who is highly calculative. Arresting him again will pop up his popularity and is like adding petrol to already dying flame or fire. PMB administration miscalculated for legally detaining the young man for too long against the court ruling. Brother Kanu knows for sure that he is losing ground for bis call for succession and his popularity is gradually falling apart, so he wisely decided to intentionally violate is bail term to rekindle his struggle for Biafran sucession. Any such stupid arrest move will amou t to bad decision because Mr. Kanu is not currently committing any criminal act. Why arresting a man who is excercing his civil right to call for anything in a non-violent manner? Nobody is above the law, if he commit any crime with a solid evidence to back it up, then arrest him and send him to prison. Kanu has tbe right to insults anybody, tribe, religious and culture as long as be is not involving in any violence or criminal acts. Afterall, he has insulted Igbo, Yorubas, Fulani, and Hausa who dear disagree with his ideas and style. The question is that, does that constitute criminal behavior? The answer is capital no. They should arrest Boko Haram leader instead and leave bro. Kanu Nnamdi alone. Many of our Igbo brothers and sisters have disowned Kanu because of his style. Please VP Osinbajo, leave this guy alone because you had already made him from nobody to a superstar, and please don’t repeat the same mistake ever again.

  2. That mumu need to go back to prison, He has turned himself to their god over there. He will be rearrested!!

  3. The strategy is working, they will keep on falling for it…Biafra will be actualized without firing a single shot…Osibanjo,stay clear of this matter because the Cabals want to use you this time, after denying you to take full control of Nigeria affairs,now they want to mess you up…Let PMB come home and sign for the rearrest himself.

    • When will you guys let go of conspiracy therory? Osibanjo dont have to sign for his re-arrest, please read the news again. The government replied kanu’s affidavit that his bail condition should be reviewed and the federal government now told the court he did not keep his bail conditions. Most of you forgot he forged medical certificates to come out of prison, for some three months plus he has not gone to any hospital, he has not filed his medical report, he has been talking and ranting, now you think the government will fold its arms and watch him continue? It is clear the judge will revoke his bail conditions, so the issue of re-arresting him is ruled out. He will appear in court and his bail will be revoked from there he will head to prison.

  4. One thing I know for sure and which is well known to kanu himself is this:
    1, He is a lazy clown who uses the illiterate amongst his people to finds his way.
    2, He wan chop him own and clean mouth coz shishi he no love any igbos as hin dey talk so.
    3, Check the ways he walk or stand and tell me the difference between him and PMB.
    PMB is old enough to parade such shape but Kanu na still small boy and he’s bending already.
    Why be say na all kanu’s no dey get meat for body, if wahala start finish u no go see am again oo.

  5. Hei Nigerians this guy is driving an agenda for just andf better life to the Ibos who have been marginalized since after the civil war in the 60s.
    All he is asking for, is what every person under oppressed system would demand.
    Lets give him the best support to actualize this laudable goal.
    The Ibos are not in the scheme of power in Nigeria but they are called Nigerian why cant cant Nigerian let them go, to govern themselves.

  6. The stringent bail condition is a perfect reflection of the avowed commitment of Buhari’s administration to operate outside the rule of law so as to smother the IPOB’s emancipation for the sovereign state of Biafra. Going by the excerpt of Nnamdi Kanu’s bail condition part of which stated that he… “must not grant an interview to any media and that his travelling passport must not be release to him and that he must not attend any rally nor must he attend a gathering of more than 10 people” and so on and so forth revealed how distorted,deeply flawed and inconsistent our judicial system has become. Such bail condition also revealed how our formerly independent judicial arm of government has been hijacked to serve the interest of the regime. How can any judicial institution limited or deprived unconvicted individual of exercising his right to freedom of speech, gathering, and of association as enshrined in our national constitution and expect any free man to not violate such stringent bail condition? I considered such bail condition as a great error of callosal proportion. It is just an attempt by the regime to keep Nnamdi Kanu-led struggle for Biafra at bay. Fortunately, whether arresting him or not, the struggle for Biafra will continue to be made public in a more proportional way until the federal government of Nigeria grant the Igbo people there international right to becoming independent as a sovereign nation.

  7. kanu talked himself to problem the very first time and he has talked himself to problem again, the differences between then and now it, when he was arrested then so many persons spoke out for him and now if his bail is revoked whch I am sure it will, coming out before the end of the trial is a likely no possibility. kanu will be remembered as a guy that could not manage his ego. WITHOUT LOVE, LIFE IS A MISTAKE.
