Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), had his bail plea denied on Tuesday by Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court.
The judge claimed that Kanu had not given the court notice of his absences from his four most recent trials.
Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimajor, revealed Justice Nyako’s decision on Twitter.
According to Ejimakor, the judge would be open to considering Kanu’s latest bail request.
“June 28 Update: Sadly, the Judge has denied bail to #MNK on grounds that “for 4 years, nothing was filed” in her court to explain why Onyendu did not attend his trial.
“She said she is open to considering a new application for bail and she granted a stay of the criminal proceedings,” Ejimakor tweeted.
