Court Grants Nnamdi Kanu Unconditional Release

Court Grants Nnamdi Kanu Unconditional Release
The Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday granted the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, bail.
Ruling on his bail application, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, said Mr. Kanu, who is the director of Pirate Station, Radio Biafra, should be released unconditionally while the case against him continues.
Mr. Kanu’s release by the federal court came a day after a Magistrate Court sitting in Abuja struck out all suits filed against him.
Magistrate Shuaibu Usman struck out all criminal charges leveled against Mr. Kanu after counsel to the State Security Services, Moses Idakwo, filed for discontinuation of the matter on the instruction of his client.
Mr. Usman said since the SSS, through its lawyer, had filed for a discontinuation of the case, he had no option than to discharge the accused.
Mr. Kanu, who was arrested by the State Security Service as he returned to Nigeria, has been in detention since October.
END.
