Nnamdi Kanu regains freedom

 Peter Bahago, Abuja

The acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr.Nnamdi  Kanu was released from custody after meeting all bail conditions.
Mr. Kanu was brought to the Federal High Court in Abuja at about 6:35 pm on April 28, 2017 accompanied of his  lawyers, family members and sureties.
It would be recalled that Justice Binta Nyako granted Mr. Kanu bail in the sum of N100m.
According to the judge, the bail was granted to the defendant to enable him attend to his health challenges.
The judge, in addition ordered that the he produces three sureties with one hundred million naira each.
The court however noted that the sureties to be provided by Mr. Kanu should include a highly respected Jewish leader, since the defendant claimed Judaism as his religion.
Also, Mr. Kanu was ordered to deposit his international passport including his British passport with the court, adding that the court should on a monthly basis be furnished with a progress report on the health of the defendant.
The other three accused, Onwudiwe Chidiebere, Banjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi were not that lucky,  as the court denied them bail on grounds that the charges against them were grievous.
