Biafra hopefuls all across Nigeria have soaked their chaplets in water, even as a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday, November 17, fixed December 1 for ruling on the bail applications filed by their embattled leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
It is the believe of many pro-Biafra agitators that the hearing of the bail applicaton by Nnamdi Kanu would lead to the freedom of their embattled leader.
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, and three others with whom he was charged with offences including treasonable felony and an act preparatory to act of terrorism, are to have their cases for bail, heared by a competent court sitting in Abuja.
Nnamdi Kanu raises his hand in victory, as he steps out of court where his bail application still remains undecided until Thursday, December 1.
The Punch reports that Justice Binta Nyako fixed the date for ruling after lawyers to the four defendants argued their separate bail applications which were opposed by the prosecuting counsel, Mr Shuaibu Labaran, on Thursday, November 17.
Others with whom Kanu was re-arraigned on November 8, were the National Coordinator of IPOB member, Mr. Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi.
They were, in the 11 counts, including treasonable felony, managing an unlawful society, publication of defamatory matter, illegal possession of firearms and improper importation of goods.
