The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu might be in serious trouble as the Federal Government has asked a court to revoke his bail.
The Federal Government has finally asked the Federal High Court in Abuja to revoke the bail granted the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Mr. Namdi Kanu, Punch has reported.
Kanu is being prosecuted along with others on treasonable felony charges. The request was made on Friday by the prosecution through an application it filed before the court and served to Kanu’s lawyers.
The Federal Government hinged its fresh motion seeking the revocation of Kanu’s bail on the grounds that the IPOB leader had flouted the terms and conditions of the bail.
It would be recalled that Justice Binta Nyako had, in her ruling delivered on April 25, granted bail to Kanu, but dismissed the separate bail applications filed by his co-defendants — the National Coordinator of IPOB, Mr. Chidiebere Onwudiwe; an IPOB member, Benjamin Madubugwu, and a former Field Maintenance Engineer seconded to the MTN, David Nwawuisi.
The Federal Government’s counter-affidavit filed in support of the motion and deposed to by a litigation clerk in the Office of the Director Public Prosecutions, pieced together Kanu’s alleged acts of serial violation of the bail conditions imposed by the court.
It maintained that Kanu had flagrantly violated all the bail conditions. It stated that the essence of the bail, which was for Kanu to look after his health, had been defeated.
According to the prosecution, instead of using the opportunity of his bail to attend to his health needs, Kanu went ahead to inaugurate a security outfit known as the Biafra Security Service.
The prosecution said this constituted a threat to national security.
It also cited an instance of how Kanu allegedly incited his followers “to disrupt, disallow and boycott elections in south East states, starting with Anambra State governorship election scheduled to hold onvbNovember 18, 2017, if the Federal Government failed to hold a referendum for the realisation of the state of Biafra nation.”
Nigerian lawmaker, Desmond Elliot has joined other Nigerian politicians in clamouring for regulation of social media.
The Lagos legislator and Nollywood actor, says Nigerian youths display rude behaviour on social media
In the video, the Actor-turned-Lawmaker called on the youth to get into Government if they are tired.
He said ;
Mr. Speaker, we need to adress certain things ;
The Nigerian Youth, The Social Media, The Social Influencers, All of these are making the narrative that we are seeing today, except we are joking with ourselves.
Social media is good but it has Negative impacts.
Let me thank you for condeming the killings and carnage that happened at Lekki. When i went through the comments i could not believe it Mr. Speaker, the curses, the abuses from children and i ask myslef, is this Nigeria ? What is going on?
Children cursing, people having the effontery to enter an Oba’s palace, hold the staff of office ? Culture is gone. Mr. Speaker, in the next 5 years, there will be no Nigeria if we don’t act now.
The youth is not only those who do the peaceful protest, but those who have looted and destroyed lives are also youths as well.
He also seized the opportunity to plead with Nigerian celebrities, social media influencers and motivational speakers to “tune down on the hate narrative.”
He said the youth have a constitutional means to change government and it is called the ‘PVC’.
He added ;
Go to the elections, if you are tired come and enter government. People are dying. The narrative must change.
