A federal high court in Abuja has dismissed an application for bail filed by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
Justice Binta Nyako, in her ruling on Tuesday, described the application as an abuse of court process having been previously denied.
Kanu was re-arraigned on an amended 15-count charge bordering on treasonable felony.
However, on April 8, the judge struck out eight of the 15-count charge.
While counts 6,7,9,10,11,12,13 and 14 were struck out, the defendant is to stand trial on counts 1,2,3,4,5,8 and 15.
