Nnamdi Kanu loses battle on fresh bail request, removal from DSS custody.

Nnamdi Kanu loses battle on fresh bail request, removal from DSS custody.

Justice Binta Fatimat Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed the request by the detained leader of the Biafra nation agitators, Nnamdi Kanu for the restoration of his revoked bail and the removal from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) to a house arrest or prison custody.

The Judge on Monday said that same request had been brought before her by Kanu and dismisses for want of merit.

In a ruling on Kanu's request, Justice Nyako said that she found as a fact that Kanu jumped the bail earlier granted him and escaped out of the country.

The Judge also held that the sureties who stood for him in the earlier bail had applied to be discharged and had been discharged on the ground that they could not locate Kanu and did not know his whereabouts.

Correspondent Kunle Ojo reports that Justice Nyako said that the only option left for Kanu was to go to the Court of Appeal and should proceed to the appellate court to exercise his right of appeal.

The Judge disagreed with Kanu's lead counsel that Supreme Court held that the earlier bail granted him ought not to have been revoked adding that she had perused the Supreme Court judgment copy and did not see the claim of the lawyer.

At the time of this report, Kanu shouting on top of his voice is insisting not to stand trial before any court in Nigeria.

He is claiming that any attempt to put him on trial would amount to a breach of Nigeria's Constitution and the international laws.
