The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Thursday, March 28, issued a bench warrant for the re-arrest of the fugitive leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In a judgement presided over by Binta Nyako, Premium Times reports that the court also revoked the bail previously granted to the IPOB leader.
Legit.ng gathers that the judgement was made following the failure of Kanu to appear in court after his bail was granted in April 2017.
Justice Nyako, according to the report, also ruled that the trial of the runaway IPOB leader must continue even in his absence before adjourning the case to June 18.

Legit.ng had previously reported that Anthony Nwoko, an activist, had berated Nnamdi Kanu, and his Biafra Independent Movement (BIM) counterpart, Ralph Uwazuruike, for compromising the Biafra struggle for personal profit.
Nwoko also raised heavy allegations against the duo among which was collecting money from Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in February 23 election.
Speaking at a press briefing in Enugu on Friday, March 23, aggrieved Nwoko also said Kanu had failed and was inconsequential to the movement.
