Why Nnamdi Kanu is still in Prison after he was granted bail

The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Tuesday admitted the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to bail on health grounds.

In a brief ruling, Justice Binta Nyako said she was convinced that Kanu was ill and needed more medical attention than the Nigerian Prisons was giving him.

“The first defendant, Nnamdi Kanu, has appealed to the court for bail based on health grounds and it is only the living that can stand trial.

“So I am minded to grant him bail so that he can attend to his health and face his trial alive.”

She, however, ordered that while on bail, Kanu must not hold any rallies, grant any interviews or be in a crowd of more than 10 people.

Nyako gave other bail conditions to include three sureties in the sum of N100 million each.

One of the sureties must be a senior highly placed person of Igbo extraction such as a senator. The other surety must be a highly respected Jewish leader since Kanu said his religion was Judaism, the third must be a highly respected person who owns landed property and is resident in Abuja.

The judge ordered that Kanu must deposit both his Nigerian and British passports with the court and that a report on the progress of his health must be made available to her on a monthly basis.

Now IPOB members are saying the conditions are too difficult.

So Nnamdi Kanu must bring Judaism man to come stand surety for am too? Hmmm!


  1. Before he will meet these conditions

  2. They are not ready to release him,wot a story

  3. What kind of stupid and wicked bail condition is this? Nonsense

  4. The bail condition goes along with his claim, repent and call on the lion of the tribe of Judah

    1. You are right. He should try the lion of Judah and see wonders

  5. i love this..it is what he bragged about that she used on him so if he is the man of the people and has willing follwers all these should be settled in a months time..all the same you are free
