In issuing her ruling, Judge Binta Nyako considered that the new request for bail is an abuse of the judicial process, after the court rejected a similar appeal on May 18.
Previously, Nigerian authorities ordered the arrest of Kanu, months after at the end of 2017 the IPOB representative fled this African country following, according to his defense, an attack by military against his residence in the locality of Afara-Ukwa, in the state of Abia.
According to local media, it is speculated that Kanu, who has Nigerian and UK nationality, moved to Israel and later settled in British territory.
The top representative of IPOB, considered by the government as a terrorist group, and who has already served a 19-month prison sentence, faces several charges, including illegal possession of firearms.
Kanu is also on trial for calling for secession and spreading alleged falsehoods about the country’s president, Muhammadu Buhari.
