“I did not jump bail, I left because the court failed to protect me,” – Nnamdi Kanu
In a Facebook post, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafria (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu said he did not jump bail but left because the court failed to protect him.
He said: “I did not jump bail, I left because the court failed to protect me,” Kanu said in a Facebook broadcast on Sunday
“What they are charging me does not exist. I don’t have any weapon. My only weapon is my microphone and my courage.”
Nnamdi Kanu disappeared over a year ago following the raid of his house by members of Nigeria’s armed forces. He was first arrested in 2015 but was granted bail in April 2017 and was ordered to provide three sureties with 100 million each.
The court also ordered him not to attend any rally, grant interviews or be in a gathering of more than 10 persons.
Following his release, and eventual disappearance, the Federal Government dragged his three sureties to court and claimed Kanu violated terms of his bail.
He had not been seen or heard of since then.
