Revoke Nnamdi Kanu's bail - South East group tells court

A group known as the South East Peoples Assembly (SEPA), has asked the Federal High Court,
Abuja, to revoke the bail granted to leader of Indigenous People of
Biafra (IPOB), Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.

This comes after IPOB in collaboration with other groups, on Tuesday
organised a successful sit-at-home in South East, an action SEPA regards
as a breach of the bail conditions granted Kanu.

Kanu who  was arrested on October 15, 2015 in Lagos and eventually
granted bail in May this year with some conditions that he must not hold
any rallies, grant any interviews or be in a crowd of more than 10

However, SEPA has accused Kanu of infringing on the bail conditions.

In a letter to the Chief Judge of the High Court, Justice Ibrahim Auta,
the President of SEPA, Prince Chukwuemeka Okoriein,  as the court, as a
matter of urgency, to revoke Kanu’s bail.

He said

“Obviously, the recklessness with which he made media statements and
even organised the ‘Sit at Home and Stay Indoor’ protest to mark the so
called BIAFRA HEROS DAY on Tuesday, 30th May, 2017 is a threat to the
unity, security and peace of Nigeria as a sovereign nation. 

“We have
no iota of doubt that he is trying to push our dear country Nigeria into
an unnecessary precarious situation for his personal agenda and those
of his paymasters.
“Sir, our decision to write this demand letter to
your good office at this time is to forestall another civil unrest in
Nigeria, particularly around the Igbo speaking region. 

“As you well
know, the struggle by Kanu to be relevant under the guise of
actualisation of Biafra does not enjoy the support of right thinking
Igbo people both at home and in diaspora. 

“That he suddenly addresses
himself as the Supreme Leader of Biafra points to how arrogant and
disrespectful he is to legitimately constituted authority in the Federal
Republic of Nigeria. 

“The pertinent question on our minds as
stakeholders is: Has Kanu been consistent in providing the court with
reports on the progress of his health and treatment on a monthly basis
since he was granted bail? 

“We fear that if Kanu is not tamed by Your
Lordship as a matter of urgency, the IPOB may create a situation where
it becomes difficult if not impossible for genuine development to take
place in the South East under the administration of President Muhammadu

“History has taught us that the Civil War of 1967-1970
started gradually and later turned out to be something that caused our
people unimaginable losses. 

“We cannot afford to fold our arms this
time and allow a stooge imported from the United Kingdom by stark
enemies of Nigeria to maintain a state of belligerence against the
nation and keep the name of Igbo people in the news for the wrong
