Nnamdi Kanu who through his counsel Ifeanyi Ejiofor told a Federal High Court in Abuja that he is ready to stand trial over an alleged treason if his safety is guaranteed was told by the same court presided over by Justice Binta Nyako that the prison is the safest place he can be.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader’s lawyer told the court on Thursday October 31, that he was seeking the restoration of Kanu’s bail which according to him was due for hearing since it was filed on April 1.

Responding to Kanu’s bail restoration application which centered on his safety being guaranteed, Justice Nyako stated that the IPOB leader’s safety can only be guaranteed if he is in prison.

“Even judges are being abducted in the country. So prison is the safest place for him (Kanu),” the judge said, before adjourning the matter to January 16, 2020.
