The Biafra Times | April 13, 2018

In the act of making headway to a Division of the Federal High Court in Abuja, today, being the rescheduled day inscribed for hearing the bail application of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th defendants, filed by Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor–led legal team of IPOB;  following the upshot of the amended charges and a "not guilty" plea entered by the quartet defendants.

It is exigent to note that Bright Chimezie, the 1st defendant in the amended charges had been granted bail by the Federal High Court, dated May, 24, 2017, which it directed an "immediate release" of Bright Chimezie from detention and a compensation fine of five million Naira to the same. Nevertheless, the Department of State Security Services, whom apprehended him brazenly flaunted the positive orders of the court.

Howbeit, he [Bright Chimezie] has been re–arraigned and adjoined to face trials with the three other defendants at the Federal High Court Abuja, in an amended three-count charge.

Similarly, the three other defendants, Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi, and Chidiebere Onwudiwe are being remanded in prison custody for almost three years, owing to the lack of ingredients that boarders on the "phantom" and "frivolous" charges slanted against them; and thereupon have no argument to have appeared before the court.

Also, before the court are pending applications aligned by the lead counsel of IPOB, 'challenging the Juries of the court to hear the suit' coming up for the bail grant.

Hence, we look forward to the sanctity of the judicial process to absorb and effectuate the bail cum release of these activists.

Stay tuned with BIAFRA WRITERS PRESS as we bring you LIVE reports from FHC today.
