Federal High Court Denies Nnamdi Kanu’s Bail Application

by Ikem Emmanuel

The Federal High Court in Abuja delivered a significant ruling on Tuesday, dismissing Nnamdi Kanu’s recent bail application. Kanu, facing charges of treasonable felony by the Federal Government, had sought release on bail pending the determination of his case.

Justice Binta Nyako, presiding over the case, declined Kanu’s plea for bail and instead ordered an expedited hearing of the government’s seven-count charge against him.

Kanu’s legal team, led by Mr. Alloy Ejimakor, had submitted the bail application on February 5, citing Kanu’s declining health as grounds for release. Ejimakor highlighted Kanu’s serious health conditions, including hypertension and acute heart disease, as confirmed by a government hospital. The team argued that Kanu’s continued detention by the Department of State Services (DSS) posed a grave risk to his life and hindered his ability to prepare his defense.

Addressing Kanu’s past bail violations, Ejimakor argued that subsequent court rulings had rendered the issue irrelevant.

However, the Federal Government, represented by Chief Adegboyega Awomolo, SAN, opposed the bail application. Awomolo expressed concerns about Kanu’s potential non-compliance with trial proceedings if released, underscoring the seriousness of the charges against him.


The court’s decision to deny Kanu’s bail application underscores the gravity of the charges he faces and the complexities surrounding his case. As the legal proceedings progress, the spotlight remains on Kanu’s health condition and the implications of his continued detention.
