BREAKING: Nnamdi Kanu's plea to leave DSS custody denied

Justice Binta 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 his removal from the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, to either house arrest or prison custody.

On Monday, the judge noted that the same request had previously been brought before her by Kanu and was dismissed for lack of merit.

In her ruling on Kanu’s request, Justice Nyako stated that she found Kanu had indeed jumped bail earlier and fled 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.

Justice Nyako said that the only option left for Kanu was to go to the Court of Appeal and exercise his right of appeal.

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disagreed with Kanu’s lead counsel that the Supreme Court held that the earlier bail granted him ought not to have been revoked, adding that she had perused the Supreme Court judgment copy and did not see the claim of the lawyer.
