A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, presided over by Justice John Tsoho has declined to release the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu‎ on bail pending his trial.

‎Justice Tsoho on Friday also denied bail to two other pro-Biafra agitators, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi, who are facing trial with Kanu.

‎He stated that the charge against the defendants “is a grave one that will attract severe punishment upon conviction”.

The court noted that the offence that was allegedly committed by the defendants, which borders on treasonable felony, attracts ‎life imprisonment.
