Nnamdi Kanu Tells Court He Is Ready To Face Trial If His Safety Can Be Guaranteed

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Thursday, told the Federal High Court, Abuja, that he was ready to face trial if his safety would be guaranteed by the court.

Kanu told the presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako, through his counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.

Ejiofor told the court that the application to restore the IPOB leader’s bail so that he could face his trial was filed on April 1.

“We have an application for bail filed on April 1, 2019, the application was served on the prosecution and it is ripped for hearing.

“We urge the court to restore his bail on the ground that the court will guarantee his safety when he comes back to the country to continue his trial,” he said.

On his part, counsel to the Federal Government, Labaran Shuaibu, who told the court that he was just seeing the process, opposed to the application.

Shuaibu urged the court to adjourn the matter to enable them to file the necessary processes.

Delivering the ruling, Justice Nyako, who adjourned the matter till Jan. 16, said the only way he could guarantee Kanu’s safety was to keep him in the prison.

She said even judges no longer safe in the country.

“Even judges are being abducted in the country. So prison is the only safest place for him,” she said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Justice Nyako had ordered the re-arrest of the self-proclaimed leader of IPOB, Kanu.

The judge gave the order in a ruling after revoking the bail granted to Kanu.

She explained that the court gave the order because Kanu had failed to appear in court after his bail was granted in April 2017.

The judge also ordered that trial would continue in the absence of the IPOB leader and directed that a bench warrant be issued for his arrest.

NAN reports that Justice Nyako had granted Kanu bail on health grounds on April 25, 2017, and asked him to present three sureties, one of whom must be a serving senator, a Jewish religious leader and a highly respected person who must own a landed property in Abuja.

The judge warned the IPOB leader against granting press interviews, holding rallies or being in a gathering of more than 10 persons while on bail.

She had also warned him that the bail would be revoked if he flouts any of the conditions.

  1. Nothing is guaranteed in this country, especially not with this APC regime

  2. Lol...he wants to come to naija.

  3. In Nigeria,prison is the only safest place?what a shame.

    1. The prison isn't even safe dear... This is a bitter truth how pitiable the country is at the moment. If Boko Haram can outran a military base, killed solders there in large numbers and cart away sophisticated ammunition, how much more the prison? Can prison warders stop them?

    2. You must have been an inmate in one of the prison to know this.

  4. Even the prison isn't safe for him either. The only way for a guaranteed safety is a United Nation protection on him. I must commend Justice Binta Nyako for being truthful and honest that she can't guarantee his safety.

    Nnamdi Kanu is ever ready to face his trial. Don't forget he has won his case both at ECOWAS court and Nigeria. There's something he wants to prove to the court and the world at large but I am afraid his safety isn't guaranteed in Nigeria and whatever happens to him from the government may trigger a national crisis if not a full blown war which I won't pray to happen.

    1. You are still this senseless and foolish to carry the matters of this coward, this scallywag and idiot on your head? Prove what? That he ran away leaving vulnerable people to die for what he deceived them into? You better wake up rather than stick your half-baked brain in your butt, acting as a Superman for an idiot like nnamdi.

    2. I wanted to respond to you in the same manner you had written those words of yours but on a second thought, I said to myself it doesn't worth it. Thanks for the insult.

  5. Nnamdi KANU!!! So you want to hear that your safety is guaranteed abi? So if you hear it, would you believe it?? Come Na!! Ka- ewere GI gwó abacha ncha!!!

  6. If he ever returns to ds country now, he will be in prison till Buhari dies. He will rotten in jail. Be there forming what I don’t know, don’t relax & have ur peace over there . People can still give ur mother a befitting burial in ur absence. APC values Boko Haran more than u ,Kanu.

    1. ...u will rot or get rotten in jail...

  7. See this one o.
    Show up and see yourself in jail.

  8. His coming guarantees nothing. It would only generate media furore. He lost his mojo the day he swore not to play politics and that his supporters should kill him if he ever hubnob with Nigerian politians. But we know how he told his supporters to vote a certain candidate during the presidential election. He's not as forceful as he used to. I think he realized hence his decision to come back
