IPOB: Nnamdi Kanu violated bail conditions – Interior Minister

The Minister of Interior, Lt-Gen Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd), on Friday accused the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, of violating the bail conditions granted him by the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Dambazau said at a news conference in Abuja that it is left for the court to determine what steps to take on the IPOB leader and to what extent he violated the conditions when his trial resumes.

He said the Federal Government has no immediate plan to re-arrest Kanu.

The minister said: “The issue is that yes Nnamdi Kanu violated bail conditions but it is not time yet for him to go back to the court for trial. We have this assumption but I think it is left for the court that gave those conditions to determine whether those conditions were violated or not.

“If those conditions were violated, the court knows what to do. We cannot assume that those conditions are being violated. Yes the public knows those conditions were given but the determination of the extent of violation will be left for the court.

“It is not like the police will go after Kanu to arrest him on the grounds that he violated the bail conditions. Kanu will have a day in court and the court will determine his fate because it is the court that gave those conditions.”

He also said leaders of the Northern youth groups that were behind the eviction notice given to Igbos in the North have been invited for questioning by the Department of State Services (DSS).
