The government stated that the IPOB broke his bail condition by constantly being in the same room with a crowd after the court ordered him to shy away from a crowd of more that 10 people at a time.

Legit.ng learnt that the statement added Kanu failed to give a medical updates of his health status to the court every month as part of the fulfillment of the conditions given for his bail.

The statement read: “Rather than observing all the conditions, the 1st defendant/respondent in flagrant disobedience to the court order flouted all conditions given by the court.

“The first defendant has in furtherance to the offence he was charged, inaugurated Biafra Security Service.

“That the defendant held a rally at his residence in his hometown, Afara-UkwuIbeku in Umuahia, Abia State; the said rally with a CROWD exceeding 10 persons was captured in video published on the 1st June 2017 and circulated on YouTube.”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that eminent lawyer and elder statesmen, Prof. Ben Nwabueze said Nnamdi Kanu, has mandated him to declare to Nigeria that he is ready to call off the struggle for Biafra if there is progress made in restructuring Nigeria.

Nwabueze said this on Thursday August 24 during a press conference by Southern Leaders of Thought at Chief Rotimi Williams Chambers, Ilupeju Lagos.

Nwabueze, who is the leader of the group, warned that “President Buhari will be looking for trouble" if he tries to usurp the constitutional powers of the people to ask for a better Nigeria through a change in structure.
