The Igbo Lawyers Association (ILA) on Friday claimed that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, did not jump bail in 2017.


The association also condemned the way the IPOB leader was allegedly abducted in Kenya and extradited to Nigeria.


The leader of ILA and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chuks Muoma, while speaking with newsmen said rather than jump bail, Kanu only preserved his life by running away from the police, Department of State Services, and army operatives who attacked his home in 2017.

After he was granted bail, Kanu stayed in his father’s house at Afara-Ukwu, Umuahia, until the invasion of the house by the police, Department of State Services (DSS) and the army. He suspected that the invasion was aimed at his life and you do not expect him to do anything,” he said.


“He has the right to self-preservation, which he did to escape from danger. If he was interested in jumping bail, why didn’t he jump bail before that incident?”



He called on Nigerians and agitators to always embrace dialogue, calling on the Buhari administration to embrace dialogue as a permanent solution to issues.


Speaking further, he added, “There are serious cases raised in Kanu’s recent presence in or rendition to Nigeria, and I have questioned the manner of his abduction because what happened was never an arrest.


“Kenyan government is busy denying that they don’t know anything. The question is, how did the man leave your territory? Does it mean Kenya has no security within its borders?”
