Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, has finally been released from Kuje prison after meeting the bail conditions.

The Federal High Court, Abuja, had admitted Mr. Kanu to bail on health grounds, but gave seemingly tough conditions, which included having ‘a highly respected’ Jewish leader, a ‘senior highly placed person of Igbo extraction such as a senator’; and a highly respected person who owns landed property and is resident in Abuja as sureties among others.

Recalled he was arrested in October 2015 following allegations of treasonable felony by the federal government, and held in the custody of the State Security Service till the ruling in January 2016 when the Federal High Court ordered that the detained Biafra agitator be kept in prison custody.

Since his detention, Mr. Kanu has made various applications for bail which were refused by the different judges handling the matter.

He was, however, granted bail on Wednesday by Justice Binta Nyako

On Friday, Mr. Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, disclosed that his client had fulfilled the bail conditions given to him by Mrs. Nyako and also confirmed that his client had been released.
