Justice Binta Nyako, the presiding judge, held that Kanu has to explain why he breached the previous bail that was given to him before another favourable offer from the court.
The presiding judge was quoted to have said:
“Until the issue of absence of the defendant for his trial, with all the bail conditions breached, is determined, the instant application of the defendant for bail will at best be premature and it is refused.
“However, the defendant is at liberty to refile the application."
