The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered the re-arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Justice Binta Nyako gave the order in a ruling on Thursday after revoking the bail granted to the IPOB leader.
It would be recalled that Kanu, who was charged to court for treasonable felony by the federal government, was in the course of trial granted bail on heath ground aside other conditions on April 25, 2017.
However, Kanu went underground in September 2017 following the deployment of troops to the Southeast when his Umuahia country home was allegedly raided by soldiers.
The pro-Biafra separatist was later seen in Jerusalem on October 19.
He made a Facebook broadcast on October 21 where he said he left Nigeria because he could not get the necessary protection from the court.
Following his absence, Kanu’s three sureties under a N100 million bond each in aggregate of N300 million, have been in a legal battle to show cause why they should not produce Kanu or individually forfeit their bail bond to the Federal government.
However, after the ensuing legal fireworks by the sureties’ counsels in the persons of Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, a Jewish priest, Immanuel Shalom and an accountant, Tochukwu Uchendu, the matter was adjourned sine die.
