Nnamdi Kanu Fights Bail Conditions: I Want To Attend Rallies, Grant Press Interviews
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mr. Namdi Kanu, has filed a motion to fight the bail conditions granted to him by the Federal High Court in Abuja. Kanu asked the court, where he is being prosecuted along with others on treasonable felony charges, to vary the conditions of the bail which it had granted him. According to Punch,in his application filed on July 1, 2017, Kanu maintained that parts of the bail conditions prohibiting him from being seen in a crowd exceeding 10 persons, granting press interviews and holding or attending rallies, violated his constitutional rights. In breach of the bail conditions being challenged by Kanu, the IPOB leader had granted press interviews and even recently led and addressed rallies of huge crowds against the holding of governorship election in Anambra State.
The trial has been adjourned until October 17.
The prosecution has yet to file its response to the motion.
