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 .
Justice Binta Nyako, had in her ruling delivered on April 25 , 2017 , granted bail to Kanu , but dismissed the separate bail applications filed by his co – defendants – the National Coordinator of IPOB, Mr. Chidiebere Onwudiwe ; an IPOB member , Benjamin Madubugwu ; and a former field maintenance engineer seconded to MTN, David Nwawuisi .
Recently , after the court delivered its ruling on the defendants ’ bail applications , the prosecuting counsel, Mr. Magaji Labaran , amended the charges to include another co -defendant , Bright Chimezie.
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.
His lawyer , Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor , stated in the motion that the undesirable bail terms and conditions were contained in paragraphs 2 (vii ) and ( viii ) of the court ’s ruling , granting bail to his client on April 25 .
