It appears the self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has fulfilled the bail conditions granted him by a Federal High Court n Abuja.

Nnamdi Kanu’s brother Prince Kanu confirmed the development saying “It’s true, he has just perfected the bail terms.”

The bail condition was perfected at the presence of the Chairman, South East Senate caucus and former Deputy Governor of Abia State, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, a Jewish High Chief Priest, Immanuu-El Shalom and a Chartered Accountant residing in Abuja, Tochukwu Uchendu.

Kanu’s ordeal

Kanu, standing trial alongside three other pro-Biafra agitators, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu, and David Nwawuisi, before the Justice Nyako-led court, was on Tuesday granted bail on health grounds.

The trial judge, however, gave some stringent conditions which the IPOB must meet.

Justice Nyako said Kanu must “Produce three sureties and two of whom must be; (a) highly respected and recognized Jewish leader and (b) highly placed Igbo person such as a Senator.

“The third surety must be resident in Abuja with a landed property in the same Abuja.

“Above all, the three sureties must deposit one hundred million naira (N100million) each.

“Barred from attending any rally and granting any form of interview.

“Must not be in a crowd exceeding 10 persons.

“Must surrender his British and Nigerian passports even when these passports are still in the custody of the DSS.

“Must sign an undertaking to avail himself for trial at all times.”
