A Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a fresh bail request by the detained leader of the Biafra nation agitators, Nnamdi Kanu .

Presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako, ruled on Monday that the same request had been brought before her by Kanu but was dismissed for want of merit.

In a ruling on Kanus request, Justice Nyako said that she found as a fact that Kanu jumped the bail earlier granted him and escaped out of the country.

The Judge also held that the sureties who stood for him in the earlier bail had applied to be discharged and had been discharged on the ground that they could not locate Kanu and did not know his whereabouts.

Justice Nyako said that the only option left for Kanu was to go to the Court of Appeal and exercise his right of appeal.
