Mr. Kanu was arrested in June 2021 following allegations that he jumped bail and other charges against him by the federal government of nigeria.
He was held in the custody of the State Security Service for some weeks now and waiting to be heard in court on 26 July when the Federal High Court ordered that the detained Biafra agitator be kept in prison custody.
Since his detention, Mr. Kanu has made various applications for bail which were refused by the different judges handling the matter.
He was, however, granted bail on Wednesday by Justice Binta Nyako
On Friday, Mr. Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told PREMIUM TIMES that his client had fulfilled the bail conditions given to him by Mrs. Nyako.
In a telephone conversation with PREMIUM TIMES on Friday evening, Mr. Ejiofor confirmed that his client had been released.
“Yes, it is true,” said Mr. Ejiofor.
A source close to Mr. Kanu also confirmed the three people who stood as surety for him.They are the Chairman of the Senate’s South East Caucus, Eyinnaya Abaribe; a Jewish priest, Immanuel Shalom; and an accountant and Abuja resident, Tochukwu Uchendu. Mr. Kanu’s lawyer, however, declined comment on the sureties,
I wish him justice from Nigeria and I also wish him quick release which is the wish of millions of people, including his supporters,
