Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor words read:
Good day Ezigbo UmuChineke,
The Honourable Justice Nyako, in his Ruling on Onyendu’s bail application refused to grant an immediate bail, but not entirely denied.
The Court, however, directed that we should return with a fresh application for bail after entertaining an application stating the circumstance(s) under which he left the country in 2017.
The court intends to inquire into that circumstance(s) before entertaining a fresh application for bail. Therefore, the road is not closed for his bail. There is still hope.
However , the Application has just been taken and adjourned to the 26th Day of May 2022 for Ruling and if the Ruling goes in our FAVOUR next week , then ONYENDU willl go home with us.
Furthermore, the Court have struck out the six amended charge brought against Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu this morning.
We will continue to provide you with updates as events unfold, but for now, remain calm and prayerful, UmuChineke.
Thank you all and remain blessed, Ezigbo UmuChineke.
