Breaking: Nnamdi Kanu released from Kuje Prison

Leader of the Indigenous People if Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has breathed the air of freedom on Friday.

The Biafra protagonist was released from Kuje prison where he had been in custody for about two years around 5pm on Friday.


Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor confirmed reports of the Radio Biafra’s director’s release following the perfection of the bail granted him earlier in the week by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Ejiofor said, “I am happy to formally inform you that Kanu is out of Kuje prison. He is out. We were able to meet the bail conditions. He left the prison around 5pm.”

In the stringent bail conditions, which Kanu met, Justice Nyako said, “He shall undertake before the court and depose to an affidavit that he shall attend his trail diligently and shall provide three sureties as follows.

“All the sureties are in sum of N100m each. One of them must be a highly placed person of Igbo extraction, such as a Senator.

“Secondly, is a person highly respected and recognised religious leader in Nigeria of the defendant’s belief. A highly respected Jewish leader.
“The third surety must be resident in Abuja, highly respected, with landed property and Certificate of Occupancy verified.”

It would be recalled that Kanu was arrested in a hotel in Lagos by the Department of State Services (DSS) on October 14, 2015.
