The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has refused to grant a bail application by the self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Mr Kanu had asked the court to determine whether the ruling by Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court was not an aberration of his fundamental rights as stipulated in the constitution.

He also asked the Appeal Court to determine whether or not, the Federal High Court was right in making his dual citizenship an excuse for refusing him bail.

In its ruling on Wednesday, the Court of Appeal held that the lower court was right in relying upon Mr Kanu’s dual citizenship, as a basis for denying his application for bail.

The court said the chances of Mr Kanu returning to his other country was high and that the laws of his other country might prevent the trial from reaching its logical end.

Mr Kanu is facing treason charges alongside two others, Benjamin Madubgwu and James Nwawuisi at the Federal High Court in Abuja. (Channels TV)
