Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja, has dismissed the request by the detained leader of the Biafra nation agitators, Nnamdi Kanu, for the restoration of his revoked bail and the removal from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), to a house arrest or prison custody.


In a ruling on Kanu’s request, Justice Nyako said that she found as a fact, that Kanu jumped the bail earlier granted him, and escaped out of the country, noting that the sureties who stood for him in the earlier bail, had applied to be discharged, on the ground that they could not locate Kanu and did not know his whereabouts.


Justice Nyako said that the only option left for Kanu was to go to the Court of Appeal and should proceed to the appellate court to exercise his right of appeal.


Meanwhile, after the courts sitting, Kanu claimed he never jump bail, insisting that he escaped from an assignation attempt.
