Nnamdi Kanu could be Rearrested Again

The federal government has asked the court which granted bail to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu to order his rearrest for flauting his bail conditions.

The creation of a security group called Biafra Secret Service is also one of the reason Kanu may be rearrested and detained.

The list of bail conditions given by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court is as follows:

1. Mr. Kanu must not hold rallies. 2. He must not grant interviews. 3. He must not be in a crowd of more than 10 people. 4. He must provide three sureties in the sum of N100 million each. 5. One of the sureties must be a senior highly placed person of Igbo extraction such as a senator. 6. The second surety must be a highly respected Jewish leader since Mr. Kanu said his religion is Judaism. 7. The third surety must be a highly respected person who owns landed property and is resident in Abuja. 8. The IPOB leader must deposit his Nigerian passport. 9. He must also deposit his British passport with the court. 10. He must provide the court with reports on the progress of his health and treatment on a monthly basis.11. The order for him to deposit his Nigerian and British passports also mean he cannot travel out of the country (If this is considered, it is the thirteenth condition).

The office of the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, released a statement asking the court to revoke the bail granted Nnamdi Kanu in April 2017. Premium Times reports that the statement by Malami indicated that Kanu has violated the 12 conditions given by the court for his bail.

The government stated that the IPOB broke his bail condition by constantly being in the same room with a crowd after the court ordered him to shy away from a crowd of more that 10 people at a time. The statement added Kanu failed to give a medical updates of his health status to the court every month as part of the fulfillment of the conditions given for his bail.

There is however the fear of riots and breakdown of law and order in the event that Nnamdi Kanu is rearested by the government. The Biafra National Guard, BNG, under the leadership of Innocent Orji, had warned that any action against the IPOB leader and other Biafra agitators will lead to “pathetic and regrettable situations for Nigeria and its leaders.”
