Embattled leader of of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has been denied bail.
Newsbreak reports that Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja held that Nnamdi Kanu must account for his whereabouts for years when he was first granted bail but refused to attend court for trial.
The court disagreed with the defendant that he escaped out of the country when a retinue of armed soldiers allegedly invaded his ancestral home in Abia State.
Ahead of the ruling on the bail application, on Wednesday morning, the Federal Government had filed a six-count amended charge against Kanu.
Justice Nyako, however, berated the prosecution for filing the amended charge just hours before the ruling. She said she was not aware of the amended charge until she got to the court in the morning.
According to her, the prosecution cannot dump the new amended charge on the court, on the morning of the hearing.
