MASSOB, Enugu residents jubilate as Kanu gets bail

A federal high court in Abuja has granted bail to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Justice Binta Nyako of the court, granted Kanu bail on “health grounds”.

Kanu, alongside other three pro-Biafra agitators, has been facing trial for treason.

The other Biafran agitators are Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi.

According to the order, Kanu is to produce three sureties with N100 million each and he is also expected to not be among a crowd

The judge said Kanu must never be seen in a crowd of more than 10 people. “No interviews and no rallies,” said Nyako.

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, was among those who attended Tuesday’s sitting.

Nyako had earlier quashed six of the charges against them, sustaining that of treason.

Journalists were barred from witnessing the proceedings by the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, was also barred from entering the court room where the case was held.
