Court announces date for Nnamdi Kanu‘s bail hearing
The Federal High Court, Abuja, has announced the date to hear the bail application of the incarcerated leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Justice Binta Nyako on Friday set May 18 and 26 to rule on the application
Recall that Justice Nyako had earlier on Friday dismissed 8 out of 15 count criminal charges against Nnamdi Kanu.
The judge threw out the 8 counts on the grounds that the proof of evidence did not link him with the charges.
Justice Nyako exonerated Kanu from the 8 charges while delivering the ruling in a preliminary objection the Biafran leader raised against all the charges.
“I have read the counts and counts 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 14 have not disclosed any offence against the defendant.
“‘Counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 15 shows some allegations. The court shall proceed to try the defendant on those count, ” the Judge ruled.
