Speaking with SaharaReporters, a prison source said Kanu left the prison yard a few minutes ago after fulfilling his bail conditions.

Justice Binta Nyako, earlier this week, granted the IPOB leader bail on health grounds.

It was gathered that Kanu’s immediate release followed a series of negotiations between a few politicians and activists from the Southeast and members of the President Buhari’s government.

The IPOB leader earlier on Friday perfected his bail in the presence of the Chairman, Southeast 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.
