The Federal Government has again asked the Federal High Court in Abuja to revoke the bail granted the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Namdi Kanu.

According to the government, that Kanu has breached the conditions attached to the bail granted him on April 25 this year on health ground and has allegedly conducted himself in manners that threaten public peace. It also cited Kanu’s alleged threat that elections would not hold in South East states until the government conducts a referendum on whether or not Biafra should secede.

The application asking the court to revoke Kanu’s bail was released to newsmen in Abuja on Friday by the Special Assistant to the Attorney-General of the Federation on Media and Publicity, Mr. Salihu Isah.

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. This constituted a threat to national security.”

The Federal Government anchored 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.

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. This constituted a threat to national security.”

It also accused Kanu of allegedly inciting his followers “to disrupt, disallow and boycott elections in south East states, starting with Anambra State governorship election scheduled to hold on November 18, 2017, if the Federal Government failed to hold a referendum for the realisation of the state of Biafra nation.”
