1min read


The leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has been released from the Kuje prison after spending 18 months in custody.

Kanu was arrested in October 2015 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on his arrival from the United Kingdom where he is based.

He remained in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, until he was charged with treason in January 2016.

Justice Binta Nyako then ordered that he be remanded in Kuje prison, where he has remained till he was granted bail on health grounds on Wednesday, April 26.

The IPOB leader eventually perfected his bail conditions on Friday, which included providing three sureties, one of which must be a leader in Judaism.

Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told journalists on Friday evening that his client had been released.
