The bail conditions gave to the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has been rejected by the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo.

Recalled that Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja yesterday granted Nnamdi Kanu bail under conditions that, Kanu will not engage in any rally, nor grant interviews and MUST not be seen in a crowd exceeding ten people.
Speaking on the bail, President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief John Nnia Nwodo,  during the public lecture in honour of the late Senator Offia Nwali, in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, described the conditions as “an anathema to the constitution and untenable.”

He queried: “What kind of bail condition is this? Any bail condition that also infringes on the fundamental human rights of the beneficiary is unacceptable. It is an anathema to the constitution and untenable.

The rule of law and separation of powers in a democracy abhor non-respect to court orders and while the three arms of government should perform their distinct functions without interference of any sort.” He said.
Nwodo said the Igbo should continue to be humble and gentle in their conduct, but sounded the warning that pushing them to the wall will no longer be tolerated and will also have long-term implications.

He added that the long incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu is a big blow to Ndi-Igbo, as Kanu committed no sin, but only expressed his fundamental right.
