Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has fixed May 18 and 26 next month for the hearing on the bail application of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu appeared before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja on Friday in continuation of his trial.

When the case resumed on Friday at the court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Justice Binta Nyako struck out eight of the charges while delivering a ruling on the validity of the charges.

According to Justice Nyako, rendition for the purpose of criminal investigation is allowed and in the instant case, there is a bench warrant on the defendant, suffice to say he is a fugitive before the court.

However, on the issue of the proscription of IPOB, the judge held that the case was pending before the appeal court and as such, the order proscribing the organisation was subsisting until it was vacated.

Mike Ozekhome (SAN), who led the IPOB leader’s defence team had asked for a bail application. Justice Nyako subsequently fixed May 18 and 26, 2022 for a hearing on the application.

She, however, said she would communicate with the legal team before the next seating regarding the proposal to move the venue of Kanu’s trial.
