After a lengthy legal struggle with the Federal Government of Nigeria, Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who is still detained by the DSS and charged with terrorism, may be released soon.
The bail hearing for Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, has been scheduled by the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Hearings on Nnamdi Kanu’s bail application have been set for May 18th and 26th, 2022, according to the federal high court. Justice Binta Nyako issued the announcement on Friday, April 8, 2022.
It was also reported that Chief Justice Nyako dismissed 8 of the 15-count felony convictions against Nnamdi Kanu on Friday, April 8, because the evidence presented against the IPOB leader did not reflect the charges against him.
The judge ruled; “I have read the counts and counts 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 14 have not disclosed any offense against the defendant.
“‘Counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 15 show some allegations. The court shall proceed to try the defendant on those counts, ”
