Nigerian government refuses bail application of IPOB members

A Federal High Court in Abuja has foreclosed the objection of the
Federal Government to the bail application by four members of the
Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Justice Binta Nyako on Wednesday refused the letter from the
office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) Abubakar
Malami (SAN), which was signed by one Y. Cole requesting for an
adjournment on the grounds that the office did not file a counter
affidavit to the bail application by defence counsel in the matter.
The judge subsequently fixed June 25 for ruling on the bail
applications brought by Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin
Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi and Bright Chimezie.
Defence lawyers Chukwudi Igwe, P.A.N Ejiofor and Maxwel Okpara
had cited health grounds for their application for the bail of their
clients, which the prosecution failed to object to before the
application was adjourned for ruling.
The defendants, whose cases were separated from the leader of
IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu (who is said to be at large) are facing three
count-charges of treasonable felony of setting up illegal broadcast
stations in UK and Nigeria for the secession of the South East,
South South and parts of Benue and Kogi states from Nigeria.
