The convener of Concerned Nigeria, Deji Adeyanju, has said the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, should be granted bail.
Naija News reports that the Abuja-based rights activist stated this in a post on his Twitter page.
According to Adeyanju, the court can restrict the IPOB leader to Abuja after releasing him on bail.
He noted that since killer herdsmen as well as Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, are walking freely, Kanu should also be given some measure of freedom.
Deji Adeyanju wrote: “Gumi, all the killer herdsmen are roaming the streets free, then Nnamdi Kanu should be released on bail to attend his trial from home. The court can even restrict him to Abuja this time around.”
Recall that IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu was reportedly rearrested in Kenya and extradited back to Nigeria last Sunday.
He was then arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako who ordered his remand in the custody of the DSS until his next trial date.
Kanu, who is facing an 11-count charge of treason, treasonable felony, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms, among others, jumped bail in 2017 and left the country, only to re-emerge in Israel and then in the United Kingdom.
