BEVERLY HILLS, April 28, (THEWILL) – Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has been released from Kuje prison in Abuja after spending 18 months in incarceration.
Kanu, in October 2015, was discharged and acquitted of all charges of terrorism brought against him by the federal government in a magistrate court in Abuja.
But agents of the Department of State Services (DSS) rearrested him and filed another suit against him at the federal high court, Abuja, while keeping him in detention.
Later on, another justice of the federal high court, Abuja, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, also ordered the unconditional release of Kanu owing to the reluctance of the DSS to file a charge against him at the time, but he was not released.
However, this time, THEWILL can confirm that Kanu has regained his freedom.
This was confirmed by his sources in the prison who revealed that Kanu has left the prison.
THEWILL had reported that Kanu perfected his bail conditions on Friday afternoon.
Kanu was granted bail on Tuesday by Justice Binta Nyako of the federal high court, Abuja, on stringent terms.
Nyako ordered Kanu to present three sureties – one of whom must be a serving Senator; the second, a Jewish leader, and the third, a highly respected Nigerian with landed properties in Abuja.
Kanu was also to deposit his international passports and was barred from public events with more than 10 persons.
Kanu is currently facing charges of treasonable felony due to his involvement in the agitations for the Sovereign state of Biafra.
