The trouble lies ahead for Nnamdi Kanu, the self-styled leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) as the Federal Government has prayed an Abuja court to revoke the bail granted him.
This was contained in a statement by the office of the Attorney General, Abubakar Malami, on Friday, in which government also asked the court to order the arrest and detention of Mr. Kanu pending the determination of the charge against him.
According to the statement which was signed by special assistant to Mr. Malami, Salihu Isah, FG is citing disobedience of court orders among other issues as grounds for the motion, PT writes.
Friday’s appeal follows a similar motion by government asking the Federal High Court in Abuja to revoke Kanu’s bail on grounds that he has conducted himself in manners that threaten public peace and violate his bail conditions.
FG’s suit was in response to an application filed on behalf of the IPOB leader that his bail conditions be reviewed by the court.
Security sources claim Mr. Kanu would be promptly arrested should his bail be revoked by the court, despite growing threats from IPOB members.
Kanu and four other suspected IPOB members – Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi and Bright Chimezie – are facing trial on offenses relating to conspiracy and treasonable felony. Their trial has been adjourned till October 17.
