The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, had his motion for bail rejected by the Federal High Court in Abuja.

In her decision on Tuesday, Justice Binta Nyako stated that the lawsuit was an egregious misuse of the legal system and an attempt to extend a legal battle over matters that have already been decided.

However, if the petitioner felt wronged by the court’s judgment, she recommended he appeal the matter to the Court of Appeal.

According to the trial judge, there have been 15 adjournments in the case since Kanu was granted bail in July 2017 and no substantive hearing has taken place as of yet.

The IPOB leader’s explanation for why he did not show up in court for the next round of his trial, she continued, did not satisfy her.

According to the court’s records, Kanu was represented by a lawyer on the day that his bail was canceled, as were his sureties, and he had never been refused a fair hearing, according to Justice Nyako.

She said that if presented with a compelling and provable argument, a court might overturn an earlier decision.

In the words of the trial judge,  “In the instant case, I have not been given any, neither have I been given any reason to set aside the order.”

She stated that before getting another favorable discretion from the court, the IPOB leader had to justify why he violated the earlier bail that had been granted to him.

The court’s March 18 refusal to grant the wanted IPOB leader bail brought about Tuesday’s decision, which was rendered three months later.
