Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has rejected the bail granted him by Binta Nyako, justice of the federal high court, Abuja.
Nyako had granted Kanu bail on stringent terms on Tuesday. One of the conditions is that he must present a Jewish leader as surety.
But a family source said that the IPOB leader had rejected the order for his conditional release.
“Nnamdi Kanu has said he will not accept the bail until other persons he was charged alongside are granted bail as well,” the source said.
“You know how he is. That is his decision.”
However, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Kanu’s lawyer, said his client had not rejected the bail.
TheCable understands that Israel and Sally Kanu, the IPOB leader’s parents, are not satisfied with the conditions given for the release of their son, hence they have called for his unconditional release.
Kanu alongside other three accused persons – Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi – are facing trial for alleged treasonable felony.
