Nigerian Govt kicks as Nnamdi Kanu lists conditions for resumption of trial

Written by on April 17, 2024

The Federal Government has kicked against conditions submitted by detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, for the resumption of his trial.

During the hearing on Wednesday at the Federal High Court Abuja, Kanu agreed to acceleration of prosecution of the charges against him on the ground that his conditions are met.

The IPOB leader, through his lawyer Aloy Ejimakor, listed three conditions that must be met before the trial could resume.

Among others, he demanded that the bail granted him earlier be restored to enable him prepare for his defense.

He claimed that the bail was erroneously revoked based on a false and fraudulent claim of the Federal Government.

Kanu also requested that the setting aside of the arrest warrant issued against him based on allegations by government that he had jumped bail and escaped out of the country.

He also demanded that his lawyer must be permitted to have unhindered access to him as required by law.

The Biafra agitator said that he would be willing to face accelerated trial once the conditions are met.

The Federal Government through its counsel, Adegboyega Awomolo, SAN, asked the court to reject the conditions on the ground that they are frivolous, vexatious, irritating and baseless.

The senior lawyer said that the court had earlier rejected the bail application and as such the court cannot over rule itself.

Awomolo argued that the only option open to Kanu is to go to the Court of Appeal to challenge the rejected bail request.

Meanwhile, further hearing is on-going before Justice Binta Nyako.
