Following the rejection of his most recent bail plea, Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a group that has been declared illegal, has urged restraint among his followers.
You may recall that the Federal High Court in Abuja, presided over by Justice Binta Nyako, rendered an unfavorable judgment against the impeached IPOB leader.
The Federal Government had filed a treasonable felony charge against the Biafra agitator; he had submitted a new application asking his release on bail awaiting the outcome of that charge. However, when the matter was scheduled for hearing on Tuesday, it was dropped.
Speaking inside the courthouse, Kanu expressed his desire for peace throughout the region and noted that he is fighting to protect people rather than to commit murder.
Despite the outcome of Tuesday’s court case, the IPOB leader vowed that he and his team would not relent until victory is achieved.
In his words, “It is what we expect. But I want our people to be very calm. I want Biafranland to be calm, calm, and very peaceful. We are fighting to defend our people, not to kill them.
“We are fighting to defend them, that’s why I’m here. And we will continue to do so until we get victory.”

Earlier, Anaedoonline.ng had claimed that IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu’s trial had been postponed by Federal High Court Justice Binta Nyako.
Justice Nyako postponed the pro-Biafra activist’s case to November 14, 2022, awaiting the Appeal Court’s ruling.
According to information obtained, Nnamdi Kanu’s legal team will appeal the High Court’s refusal of his bail request.
