Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu accuses Buhari of influencing bail denial

Embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOP) Nnamdi Kanu today blamed the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari of influencing judges for his continued detention since last October.

Mr. Kanu who spoke through his counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor in Abuja, said the President’s pronouncement is influencing judicial decision.

Kanu’s counsel said: “After Kanu was granted bail on December 17, the president was heard saying at the presidential media chart that he will not leave the prison cell, for any reason. That bail was made known to Federal Government on 18th December 2015 but they failed to grant the bail.”
