May 18th to decide Kanu’s bail request-court.

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja,  slated May 18 to rule on an application that detained the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, filed to be released on bail, pending the determination of the treasonable felony charge the Federal Government entered against him.

Trial Justice Binta Nyako adjourned to rule on the application after she heard arguments from both Kanu’s lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome(SAN), and the prosecution counsel, Mr. Shuaibu Labaran.

Whereas Ozekhome(SAN), argued that his client was entitled to bail considering that he still enjoys the presumption of innocence under the 1999 Constitution, as amended, FG’s lawyer, Labaran, urged the court to decline the bail request.
