SAN FRANCISCO, April 27, (THEWILL) – Self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, on Friday, fulfilled the bail conditions granted him by the Federal High Court, Abuja.

- He must provide three sureties in the sum of N100 million each.
- One of the sureties must be a senior highly placed person of Igbo extraction such as a senator.
