A request by the Nigerian government seeking the revocation of the pro-Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s bail, is “misconceived”, his lawyer has said.

The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, on Friday demanded the revocation of Mr. Kanu’s bail which was granted the defendant in April.

The application which was based on 12 grounds of appeal, followed an allegation by the AGF that Mr. Kanu exhibited flagrant disobedience of court orders on his bail conditions.

“Among other conditions for the bail of the 1st defendant are as follows: “That he should not be seen in a crowd exceeding 10 people,” Mr. Malami said in a statement.

“That he should not grant any press interviews, hold or attend any rallies. And that he should file in court medical updates of his health status every month.

“Rather than observing all the conditions, the 1st defendant/respondent in flagrant disobedience to the court order flouted all conditions given by the court. The first defendant has in furtherance to the offence he was charged, inaugurated Biafra Security Service, ” the statement said.

In a reaction to the application, however, Mr. Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told PREMIUM TIMES on Friday that his client had “successfully challenged the bail conditions referred to by the government”.

“Though we intend to file a formal response to their most misconceived motion, it is my position that it does not lie in the power of the AG to ask for the revocation of the bail granted to my client. The prosecution can’t be seen at the same time as the persecutors.

“We have successfully challenged the bail terms we considered offensive to our clients constitutionally guaranteed rights. So their recent application is belated.

“Section 169 of the ACJA being relied upon by the AG can’t avail the Attorney General absolute power to ask for the revocation of bail. Parties must be heard on the merit by the court, ” Mr. Ejiofor said.

Mr. Ejiofor also said the alleged security outfit created by Mr. Kanu is a “mere group” formed in the exercise of the citizen’s constitutional right.

He added that the group cannot “by any stretch of the imagination” constitute themselves into a security threat.

“Let the federal government open their case if they have any genuine charge against my client. They are beating about the bush because they have no case against my client,” Mr. Ejiofor said.

Mr. Ejiofor further said the bail granted his client should be viewed in terms of its essence to ensure attendance at court hearings.

“Let me remind the public that the main essence of bail is to ensure that the person affected stands his trial and nothing more.

“Our client is ready to stand his trial but the federal government is not willing to open their case, they are rather interested in keeping my client behind bars which can’t happen again.”

The application filed by Mr. Malami was pursuant to sections 169 and 173 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, ACJA.

According to section 169 of the ACJA, the AGF is empowered to make the said demand, in the event where: “circumstances arise which in the opinion of the AGF would justify the court cancelling the bail.

“Where a defendant has been admitted to bail and circumstances arise which in the opinion of the AGF would justify the court in canceling the bail, or requiring a greater amount: a court may on application being made by the Attorney General of the Federation, issue a warrant for the arrest of the defendant and after giving the defendant an opportunity of being heard, may commit him to prison to await trial, or admit him to bail for the same amount”.

In section 173, the court of law is exclusively empowered to act in a similar circumstance.

Section 173: subsection (2) states thus: “the court may, where circumstances appear just (a) vary the order of release of the defendant at any subsequent hearing: (b) at any subsequent stage of the proceedings cause a defendant who has been released on bail to be arrested and committed to prison custody, provided that the judge shall state in his proceedings the reason for the variation of the condition or commit a of the defendant”.

Part of the allegations against Mr. Kanu includes making separatist comments and inciting Igbo natives to refrain from exercising their rights to vote.

Mr. Kanu also spearheaded a sit-at-home protest in the Southeast region on May 30, after he was released.

    Obiano is loving this now ,I can imagine.

    • MilitaryPolice01

      I would not blame Obiano, every responsible leader will loathe the deliberate destabilization of his state especially as it concerns an up coming electoral process which determines his immediate political future

      • Sam

        Exactly, and all true sons of ndigbo must voice out to restrain Kanu, because his actions may have serious consequences of mistrust on ordinary igbos who don’t share any of his delusions.

        • obiora

          Are you an IGBO man ? please before you claim ask your Mother.

  • amazing2012

    The best way to handle this issue of IPOB is for the Federal Government to go the same way the group is going. That is to say arrogance, breach of laws, and confrontation. Simple ! Arrest him and those with him and fire them once and for all !! Then go to court to answer the questions of fundamental rights.

    • konzemac

      Mr Goat, where is your comon sense ?

      • amazing2012

        My sense is in truth and reality !
        Yes ! Anything wrong with firing them at close range? Kanu said in his video that they have enough weapons to destroy Nigeria (a population of over 180 million people). Are these people goats, to be slaughtered by IPOB?
        Google and Watch the Video on YouTube. Kanu continued that they have experts on missiles and have enough to bomb the whole country.
        Is he joking or insane or what ? Anybody that made this statement and is sane should be fired straight way. Please try this statement on any country in the world and see if you live to see next hour.
        Ignorant people but megalomaniac !

          I’ll destroy Nigeria with the truth, that was what he said you moron. Stop ranting, go and arrest him by yourselves.

      • Musa Sule

        Why do Igbos see themselves more human than every one?I see that in every field of discuss the word goat, animals etc is the fire they spit…leadership is acquired through Democratic means which is the platform Nigeria is on,but you(Igbo’s) just want to be given.Since it is clear your population can’t avail you such position, those with can no longer be human but animals (goats)…watch your mouth, we are advocates of ‘ONE’ Nigeria for are yet to know what your problems are.

        • Justice Equity

          Please tell me any tribe in Nigeria that their number can guarantee them the office of the president of Nigeria without the vote of other tribes in Nigeria? Please what is the population of Fulani in Nigeria that gave buhari presidency? Some times I shudder at the capacities of you guys to spew lies and peddle falsehood .
          For Gods sake,what is the problems of Igbo in Nigeria, they are the ones who are sincere ,truthful and practice one Nigeria without cunning craftiness.
          Wherever they found themselves they integrate themselves with the inhabitants of that area,marry their daughters and give their own daughters to the inhabitants for marriage, they build houses and live in them ,and settle down completely without any ulterior motive. Igbos are not land grabbers and never dream of political conquest of their hosts.
          All that the igbos are seeking from Nigeria is to be treated with justice, equity and fairness. Igbos have never seemed to take double portion from Nigeria as the Fulani are doing, they have never levied war

          • ‘they have never levied war’ REALLY?

            History revisionist!

          • Justice Equity

            war on their hosts communities, they goes about their business without envying their hosts ,they labor with their own hands to make a living.
            Now what is wrong in Igbos demanding that Nigeria should be operated on the basis of equity ,Justice, and fairness to all,how could for example a national oil corporation board of nnpc be composed of nine members without any member from south east when Nigeria have 6 geopolitical zones structure, why will buhari appoint service chiefs ,security heads in Nigeria made up of 9 members without any member from south east when Nigeria have six .can buhari seek to borrow $30 b to build infrastructure in Nigeria without any of the infrastructure sited in the south east when Nigeria have six zones. How should national examination bodies set highest cut off marks for igbo states in Nigeria .why should south east zone be the only zone with 5 states when others have six and seven .Etc This is the heartless injustice that Igbos are fighting against.any human being that finds fault with a people fighting for justice ,equity and fairness ,are satanic, heartless, evil,devilish and wicked.Igbos are fighting for justice, what are Fulani herdsmen and boko haram fighting for.

          • “Labor with their own hands”?
            This is the reputation the igbo-biafra man would like to spread, however you left out fraud that which they are best known for.

            For your departure you now insist that the winner of the battle who in doing so lost men in the process, should simple turn around and hand over the trophy so you do not start another war?

            You want a fair and even Nation when GEJ was in office you insisted that SS was also SE, by that logic whenever a SS is occupying a position aren’t they also representing SE, more over look at the size of SE landmass you’re about the size of a one state ‘combined’.

            Next time run for office, if the people consider your worthy they would vote for you, if you want to leave and move back to your own (5) state region go in peace.

            This are political appointment how many people from SE voted for PMB?

            This country would not negotiate it’s existance with blackmailers. i.e, Boko-Haram or kanu the crook.

            For igbo-biafra this is the best you’re going to get in this country, yes i’m of the North but i do not speak for Northern elders but represent it’s youth.

          • Justice Equity

            I will like to take you on and give you a very good appropriate response to your malicious hate rants ,but before I do,I will like you to tell me your tribe or ethnicity, do not hide under the ‘north’ ,north is a cardinal point and not a people, you are suffering from an inferiority complex and that’s why you are too scared ,ashamed and cowardly to say whom you are and you are hiding under the deceitful omnibus north.
            Does your north include southern Kaduna people, egede people, taraba people, berom people ,chibok people ,agatu people etc.

          Why did fg arrest n charge him to court in d first instance, is it not because of his perceived utterances? So u ar sensible enough u should let d court decide his case. Saying ipob should be crushed den answer question later shows ur level of reasoning in a democratic settings. Wen ur child one day grows n challenges ur shortcomings, if there’s any, if u don’t try to settle ur differences, rather crush him n answer questions later will make u a hypocrite, n a double faced man

      While condoning arewa youths that made the most treasonous proclamation, condone opc that have murdered more than 5000 northners and are armed to the teeth and who have barracks all over the south west,then the government should also condone the Fulani herdsmen armed with ak47 going about murdering Nigerians, the government that have freed all the commanders of boko haram captured in battle by the military.
      With this kind of hate overwhelmed ,biased ,satanic mindset, I am beginning to see this so called one Nigeria as a curse to black race.

  • Otunga

    NIGERIA IS A BAD JOKE! AT TIMES LIKE YOU CANT HELP BUT MISS A MAN LIKE GENERAL SANI ABACHA…OH, WHERE ART THOU? IPOB/AREWA YOUTH KEY ACTORS WOULD’VE BEEN HANGED LONG LONG TIME AGO!

      You just committed the same “crime” Kanu is alleged to have committed. So, when is your hanging date?

    • obiora

      But who is the criminal here. So you think a state can not be the criminal. Was Abacha not a criminal then?

      • Abache was an illegal state.

      • Rosebud

        ???

  • konzemac

    I don’t think Kanu has any questions to.answer . Federal government is getting confused on daily basis .

  • The issue is whether or not Kanu has breached his bail condition.

    • MilitaryPolice01

      Kanu culpability for treason depends to a large extent on how you view it, the perspective, political leaning and cultural orientation of who is making the interpretation. Some think he is guilty for seeking secession from a sovereign country while some think he is within his right to aspire to self determination. Whichever way you look at it, you are entitled to your views.

      Having said that, if the laws of the land which is Nigeria is to be considered and the legal dictates and requirements of his bail conditions are to be followed to the later, the truth must be said that he has broken 80 if not 90 percent of his bail agreement, hence the FG is justified in seeking its revocation.

      We must learn to stand for the truth no matter how distasteful it is. Even if Kanu has less regard for the state, he should at least have had regard for his sureties who came through to stand for him at a time most people would not touch him even with a 100 meter bar.

      • Karl Imom

        Kanu has NO constitutional rights in Nigeria because he does NOT pay Nigerian taxes. He should NOT have been granted bail in the first place.

        • Dinobi77

          Wen I read comments like this I quiver, he doesn’t have rights in Nigeria as a Nigerian? Nnaa ehh, some people re soooo dumb n ignorant.

          Publish your tax certificate for us to see mr tax payer.

        • On a serious note i disagree with you ’cause if you can’t grant him bail then you can’t arrest him either.

          He need to be locked up.

      • Contact Point

        I wonder if my mentally blind brothers that are bereaved of common sense will agree with you but you have just stated the obvious. Kanu must be rearrested pure and simple. We are talking of law here and not tribal sentiment of political leaning.

        • Dinobi77

          U should allow the court to decide that. Kanu is intelligent enough to know hes violating his bail conditions, n need not someone like u to remind him of that.

        • Delta_Quagmire

          Kanu is not going back to any jail because he has not violated any condition whatsoever. The federal government did not respect the court order to release him prior to all these. The “ZOO” itself is a lawless entity.

        • JOHN

          You are completely ignorant of the law. Attorney General is bias in favour of Arewa that want the status quo maintained. No bail conditions can take away Kanu’s constitutionally guaranteed fundamental human rights. The essence of bail conditions is to guarantee that they accused attend court sessions and not to dehumanized the accused. The judge must have been teleguided to give bail conditions that violated our constitution and to that extent is illegal, unconstitutional and null and void abinitio. So nobody should rearrest KANU except they want to perpetuate illegality.

      • JOHN

        Remember that no bail conditions can strip Kanu of his constitutionally guaranteed fundamental human rights. Any ruling that is inconsistent with the constitution is deemed illegal, unconstitutional and null and void to the extent of the inconstancy. The bail conditions was unconstitutional abinitio.

    Muhamadu Buhari is too incompetent to be entrusted with the thinking job of a president. After he was chased out
    of London six days ago, and ran back to Nigeria – abandoning his lies that he was being detained by his doctors,
    who as the riots started could not have gained entrance – he’s destroyed public peace in Nigeria and provoked
    street protests. It takes a slow learner to consider lowering the standard of education in Nigeria as priority.
    But that’s what this Buhari did within five days of running out to escape international disgrace in London.
    He said from now on anyone who can score 30% fail mark in JAMB exam must be admitted to university.
    Buhari cannot resume because he is blank without gumption or plans on what to do as Nigeria sinks.
    Those who voted for Primary Six certificate holder as CHANGE are as sickening as Buhari himself.

    Breach of conditions of bail is not a Bail Act offence, nor is it a contempt of court unless there is some additional feature. AGF is not so learned here. BTW it is not the job of the prosecution to call for vary/revocation of bail but that is of the enforcement authority in this case the court commanding the belief to do so.

    Thus it is not what you hear, see or think but what is legal here. The law ( they say) is an ass so to speak

    Buhari losing the war against corruption; and, losing all else

    The Buhari government
    has no compass. It just drifts any which way like something blowing in the
    wind. Muhamadu Buhari himself does not inspire Nigerians. His sense of justice
    is wrong and askew. Here are two examples of frauds of huge public importance which
    President Muhamadu Buhari sweeps under the carpet either because those involved
    are financiers of his APC party or related to top APC party members:

    • A whopping $146 million allegedly stolen from
    NNPC was found hidden at Sterling Bank in Nigeria by the bank’s Managing Director
    Yemi Adeola who actively hid the funds away from the bank’s balance sheet and
    actively disguised it to prevent detection. President Buhari has not brought the
    Sterling Bank’s officials to book till date for conspiracy or moneylaundering.

    • The Federal government’s Financial Reporting Council agency
    conducted an official investigative audit of Central Bank of Nigeria under the
    tenure of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi and uncovered massive fraud disguised on the
    bank’s account books totaling a whopping one Trillion three hundred billion Naira.
    That audit report was detailed and delivered to President Buhari since 29th May,
    2015. Till today, President Buhari has taken no sensible step to either recover the
    stolen funds or bring the CBN officials to book as fraudsters.

  • Anasieze Donatus

    I dislike discussing this con artist called Kanu.This kid is portraying the igbo nation in bad light .All his supporters have nothing to offer as they prefer to engage in provocative insults instead of intellectaul argument,They are mostly made up of Okada and keke riders. The only respect i have for the kid called Nanmdi is his ability to play on the intelligence of his muguish followers who believe that their Biafra is made in Heaven. Kanu is no igbo more than me but i sincerely believe that his struggle for BIAFRANIZATION of igboland should start from his state Abia where development is a TABOO. Aba which is the major city is no go area and his Umuahia is a dungeon.Kanu should use his IPOB to start fighting T.A.Orji and IkpeAzu to recover their stolen destiny. As the Chairman/Managing Director of IPOB MUGU FOLLOWERS NIGERIA LTD ,Kanu should start sensitizing his followers to start asking questions about Abia state Federal Allocations plus 13% derivation and yearly 1.5Billion Naira constituency Project Allowance earn every year by the 3 Senators from Abia.After a good account of this money and they projects that was executed by it has been properly accounted for since 1999,when can then seat down as igbos and discuss how to tackle the Federal Government.IGBOS ARE MARGINALIZED AND MANIPULATED BY THEIR POLITICAL ELITES AND NOT FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.OUR MARGINALIZATION IS 30% FEDERAL AND 70% IGBO ELITES. Bring on your abuse or intelligently counter this.

    • Dawood

      I don’t know why the FG is waiting for the courts before arresting this fraud. While he’s out soaking in his celebrity status with his mumu followers, his criminal friends- sponsored by big time pot-bellied looters- are stacking up arms and setting up security apparatti. This is how Boko Haram started. Arrest him, lock up his adultering ass, and let him languish in jail. Nonsense.

      @anasiezedonatus:disqus

      Everything that can be done should be done to assure the REPUBLIC OF BIAFRA as soon as possible.
      The Igbo people leading this successful campaign are the most enlightened crop in Nigeria. They can
      reason very well, unlike the wrongly educated Yoruba people who are mentally deranged to believe
      they have something in common with Hausa/Fulani/Kanuri murderous Islamist Jihadists. Even the
      British colonialists who colonized present-day Nigeria saw as far back as 1860 that the people
      of southern Nigeria have nothing in common with those benighted Hausa/Fulani/Kanuri
      murderous Islamist Jihadists. But because Bola Ahmed Tinubu did not go to his claimed
      primary and secondary schools he did not study any history and therefore he is none
      the wiser in his addiction to wangled money and vaulting illusion as vice-president.

      • Opekete

        It is very obvious that you are absolutely and irredeemably ignorant of history. Go to the library and read Nigeria political history from 1914 including the evolution of new Nigeria that gave birth to our independence. Also read the role played by the Igbos militarily and politically to harness the young nation immediately after independence and shortly before the civil war. I cannot blame all of you who get your education from sound bight on the internet and will not avail yourself of critical thinking that only real education can afford.

          • Arabakpura

            You must have missed your identity because even my own father – and I will soon be a grand father talks about his own father’s house! My friend, you are a fraud!

          • Anasieze Donatus

            You will soon be a grand father,it means you are of same age with my second son Uzoma.And the only slave i see withn this forum is you who have no lineage identity and we call such ORU where i come from

          • Arabakpura

            I must have washed clean my hands only to break palm kernel for fowl! It’s all good!

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    The secessionist and lawless criminal,Nnamdi Kanu,s lawyer, must be told by all Nigerians, that his client,Nnamdi Kanu, has not lived within the strict conditions attached to his bail by the Federal court judge,in Abuja, while granting him strict bail and Nnamdi Kanu, having flagrantly violated those strict bail-conditions must be re-arrested and locked up again till the prosecution and final conclusion of his case.If anyone who has not learned from the Igbo people,s experience during the last civil war between 1967 and 1970, then let them dare to declare another civil war and wait for the response of Nigerian security forces.
    Igbo people, are folding their hands now on the chests, watching one of their own,Nnamdi Kanu, pushing them into another vicious destructive war.

  • JOHN

    The constitution of Nigeria guaranteed Mr KANU some fundamental human rights that no bail conditions can successful take away. The judge knows that, except they want to dehumanize the ibos who Kanu symbolized. Instead the Attorney General should charge his Arewa youth for treason. They should not turn this country into their personal property as other ethnic tribes has equal stake. They are beginning to be very despotic and to abridge the rights of Nigerians. We are in a democracy, for crying out loud.

    • Rosebud

      When f00ls speak, they sound exactly like you do, ignoramus.

      • JOHN

        You have not debunked the tested legal principle. An accused is presumed innocent by our constitution until he is proven guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction. Please repent of your gross ignorance.

        • Rosebud

          Bail presumes neither innocence or guilt, and is neither accusatory or mandatory in this case, but lies entirely at the judge’s discretion. It was offered by the judge with conditions attached and accepted by that vermin, called KANU, and his foot-in-the-mouth lawyer.

          That you think it’s all about constitutional privilege shows you off as exactly the f00l l thought you were.

          • JOHN

            Rulings and judgements of courts including bail conditions can be set aside but express stipulations in the constitution in respect if a citizen’s inalienable fundamental human right is sacrosanct and is protected by the constitution and all courts. Your position is misleading and borne out of wicked ignorance.

          • Rosebud

            It’s either you’re really dense or you lack basic comprehension for spoken/written English. Either way, engaging in useful discourse or the anticipation of it with you is an exercise in futility and a waste of my precious time.

          • I sigh

            The 2 previous court orders to release Kanu was unconditional and now “what says you”? Did someone disobey the court order and if so is it Ejiofor or Malami/buhari? Why must you pick and choose the court order that you revere since all the courts are of the same validity.

          • Rosebud

            I didn’t cherry pick anything, Kanu and his leaky mouth lawyer did. They chose to abide by the terms and conditions of his bail, l didn’t. Kanu agreed to be bound by the terms of his bail under threat of punishment if violated, l didn’t. They signed off on the terms and conditions of that legal agreement, l didn’t.

            Kanu’s choices are simply; abide by the terms and conditions of his bail, until such a time he succeeds in setting them aside, or fall foul of our laws.

          • I sigh

            You and FG are only talking about the last bail condition which is the most unrealistic in the history of bail condition in the world and this is why I said you pick and choose because there where 2 previous ones that were unconditional. Are you subscribing to the one issued by a pro Sharia Judge but not the one issued by a circular Yoruba Judge? Kanu’s lawyers singed the documents of the last bail to fight it later because if one holds you on a strangle hold, you will sign anything to free your neck and regroup. What you call flaunting of bail is regrouping to expose the FG to the world.

          • Rosebud

            I’m subscribing to the one Kanu agreed to and signed off on. The one that granted him his conditional freedom and the one he agreed to abide by.

          • I sigh

            Kanu also never disagreed to abide by the first 2 unconditional bail conditions, mind you. buhari and his FG broke the law about bail first, again mind you.

    • jayjay

      pls can you enlighten me how a prisoner or a person under house arrest can fully exercise his or her fundamental human rights, because some of their fundamental human rights will be limited likewise someone given bail with conditions.

      • I sigh

        Have you seen any one under house arrest in a real democracy, for example in the USA?

        • Julius

          Yesssssssssssssssss !!! Thousands !!

          • I sigh

            Name them in the USA, please.

        • Rosebud

          Dominic Strauss Kahn, Bernie Madoff, Rodney King, Lindsay Lohan, rappers Dr Dre, Rick Ross and T.I etc, etc. Don’t forget Buhari, Baba himself and MKO Abiola. The list world over is endless.

          • I sigh

            If you are right, the difference is that it was not by secret trial of pro sharia judge, but I have to verify the names you listed.

        • jayjay

          what of a prisoner?

          • I sigh

            To be a prisoner, you first of all have to be convicted of a crime, and Kanu has not.

          • jayjay

            bot all who are confine are convicted

          • I sigh

            What?

          • jayjay

            sorry for the typo. i mean there are so many people that are confined in prison or any other form but not convicted. The extent of freedom is always being determined by the law of the land

          • I sigh

            Was it the law of an animal kingdom that granted Mr. Kanu the first 2 unconditional bail?

          • jayjay

            it’s in the public domain those condition Kanu agreed and signed to, so, i rest my case.

          • I sigh

            Why must you pretend to be oblivious of the 2 initial unconditional bails granted Kanu by pro circular Judges, but hug the sharia-like one granted by pro Sharia Katsina Judge?

  • BEN IKARI

    how many court orders has buhari and his pseudo civilian regime or military dictatorship at best obeyed since 2015; how easy is it to ask for what you can’t give or do; and except in nigeria where else can one sow rice and expect to reap crude oil or rivers beaming with fishes?

  • thusspokez

    A request by the Nigerian government seeking the revocation of the pro-Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s bail, is “misconceived”, his lawyer has said.

    What kind of lawyer is this Ifeanyi Ejiofor? Did he advice his client Kanu to stop the following:

    [1] Breaking his bail conditions.
    [2] Holding public rallies.
    [3] Taunting the federal government and the law enforcement agencies.
    [4] Disrupting commercial activities in Port Harcourt and elsewhere.
    [5] Calling for boycott and threatening to disrupt elections in the South-East.
    …etc.,

    Where was this mediocre layer Ifeanyi Ejiofor when Kanu was committing all these sins. And if he gave his client advice and the client wouldn’t listen to him, why had he not resigned?

    • I sigh

      You are a joke to think that the Sharia like bail condition by a pro Sharia Judge is something to write home about by non Sharia victims of such ruling.

      • Julius

        Moron, but he accepted that same “sharia like bail condition “. Didn’t he ?

        • I sigh

          Let me have you on a strangle hold or gun point and see what papers you will not sign.

          • Julius

            lolz, a whole emperor was forced to sign some papers with his lawyer ? Is there any excuses that you losers won’t make ?

          • I sigh

            Guns kill even Emperors and Kanu is not an Emperor and has never claimed to be one. He will not even run for office if Biafra comes.

          • Julius

            lolz, lying mofo fools . You don’t even know what your emperor is saying or doing and here you are defending the indefensible. Comot for road abeg.

          • I sigh

            No comot for road make gwongworo hammer you. Tell us where Mazi Kanu called himself and Emperor. His felowers call him, director, leader or Ohamadike and not any emperor.

          • elthamps

            Guess that you’ve finally succeeded in making your comment of the year!! Abiola stupidly hearkened to such an advice by your treacherous elders, and ended up famous posthumously.

          • Julius

            Loser, I guess you find another excuse. Kanu and his lawyer signed a bail document but now claiming it to be unconstitutional and you are bringing up Abiola. Igbo man, na wa for una !

      • thusspokez

        Balderdash!

    • Kenny

      Your assertions are grossly unintelligent and devoid of reasoning! Perhaps you attended a night school? The constitution of Nigeria has made his rights very fundamental and superior to any other proclamation by a court of law. Ejiofor’s argument Is valid!!

      • thusspokez

        Your assertions are grossly unintelligent and devoid of reasoning

        Yet you don’t have the intellect to present a counter argument to invalidate my argument.

      • Rosebud

        Good! So, why acquiesce to the terms and conditions of his bail? If he had such convictions he should have refused bail to sit that argument out in jail.

        • Justice Equity

          The same courts ordered for the release of dasuki and El za zaki ,but the law abiding government have refused to oblige the courts.

          • Rosebud

            Story for another day, the discourse here, is about one degenerate called Kanu.

          • Justice Equity

            The matter under discussion is disobedience to lawful orders of the court. To you guys who were conceived in hate and brought forth in hypocrisy, it is good to discuss about kanus infringement on the laws but not good to discuss buharis infringement on the same laws of the same Nigeria under the same democracy.

  • Rosebud

    Ifeanyi Ejiofor is a quack who must have mislead his uninformed client into believing he can get away with flouting court orders.

    That court order which both himself and KANU acquiesced to, remains valid until such a time when it’s set aside. He has not successfully set aside anything until whatever prayers sought are ruled upon.

    A mere challenge to the terms of his bail does not change anything until ruled upon nor does such a challenge estop, dilute or mitigate his prevailing bail conditions.

    • Julius

      lolz, he must be a SAN. Hope he is getting paid because he is making no sense just like the rest of them.

    Have they been able to prosecute Boko Haram to a logical conclusion? That was the same animal that wanted to circumvent the Acting President!

      Oh, so kanu is a member of BK ?.well, he must be treated as such…don’t you think so ? You mumu dey talk .

      • Arabakpura

        You have begun to throw stones again by using your mumu word? You see why some of them use very derogatory words on you guys!

  • Jumpingbrook

    OK when he is arrested which he will, come and tell us all your reason. That Moron Nnamdi Kanu thinks he is Lord of the jungle, now the jungle has matured, he will pay the price.

  • Kenny

    Ethnic bigots everywhere! Truth be told: would the North have stayed glued to Nigeria If the oil and gas were in their dry land?

    • Julius

      So this is why the FGN is trying to revoke the bail condition that was given to knau ?. I never knew it was for oil. Thanks for the info…smdh !

    • We would never know.
