The Federal Government may ask the Federal High Court in Abuja to revoke the bail granted to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, on grounds of alleged breach of the conditions of the bail granted him in April.

The federal ministry of Justice, which is prosecuting the IPOB leader is reportedly compiling the alleged breaches of the bail conditions by Kanu for the goal of taking the necessary action, the Punch reports.

It said: "Arresting Mazi Nnamdi Kanu again can not stop the agitation rather it will be a very big mistake on the side of Federal Government and her security operatives because when the security operatives arrested him on his arrival from London in his hotel room in Lagos it sparked protests and rallies across the world".

The source said: "We are taking note of his conducts which were in breach of the conditions of the bail granted him".

They said the prosecuting authorities were taking records of the alleged breaches, reviewing them and would take "the necessary step at the appropriate time".

When asked to name some of the breaches of Kanu's bail condition observed, the source said: "It will not be appropriate to reveal the details now".

Justice Nyako also prohibited him from being in any crowd of more than 10 persons.

Some days later, he granted an interview to Al-Jazeera where he was quoted to have said, "It's like asking me not to breathe".

The National Leader of the group, Mazi Ifeanyi Igwe in a press conference at the weekend said it was reacting to a shocking revelation made by Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety) and Southeast-based Coalition of Human Rights Organizations (SBCHROs) on those funding the Biafra agitators.

The charges included conspiracy and treasonable felony by allegedly conspiring among themselves to broadcast on Radio Biafra agitation for the secession of Republic of Biafra from Nigeria.

Nnamdi Kanu's trial resumes on July 11.
