The Federal Government has turned down the conditions advanced by detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, for the resumption of his trial.

The detained IPOB leader at the resumption of his trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja, had through his lawyers, gave three conditions for prosecution to meet for the continuation of his trial.

Kanu, through his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, among others demanded that the bail granted him earlier be restored to enable him prepare for his defense.


He claimed that the bail was erroneously revoked based on a false and fraudulent claim of the Federal Government.

Kanu also requested setting aside of the arrest warrant issued against him based on allegations by government that he had jumped bail and escaped out of the country.

He also demanded that his lawyer must be permitted to have unhindered access to him as required by law.

The Biafra agitator said that he would be willing to face accelerated trial once the conditions are met.

However, the Federal Government, through its counsel, Chief Adegboyega Awomolo, SAN, asked the court to reject the conditions on the ground that they are frivolous, vexatious, irritating and baseless.

The senior lawyer said that the court had earlier rejected the bail application and as such, the court cannot over rule itself.

Awomolo argued that the only option open to Kanu is to go to the Court of Appeal to challenge the rejected bail request.
