However, the bail application filed by the detained IPOB leader was turned down by the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.
The court on Wednesday declined the application pending the determination of the treasonable felony charge filed against him by the federal government.
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.
