In a brief ruling, Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, admitted on Tuesday 25th April that the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, would be granted bail on conditions based on health issues.

The bail conditions are as follows:

* He must not hold rallies.

* He must not grant any interviews.

* He must not be in a crowd consisting of more than 10 people.

* He must provide three sureties in the sum of N100 million each. One of the sureties must be a senior highly placed person of Igbo extraction for example, a senator, the second surety must be a highly respected Jewish leader, the third surety must be a highly respected person who owns a landed property and resides in Abuja.

* The IPOB leader must deposit his Nigerian passport.

* He must also deposit his British passport with the court.

* He must provide the court with reports on the progress of his health and treatment on a monthly basis.

* The order for him to deposit his Nigerian and British passports also mean he cannot travel out of the country (If this is considered, it is another condition).

Recall that Mr. Nnamdi Kanu was arrested in 2015 on an 11-count charge bordering on terrorism and treasonable felony.
Six of the charges, including that of terrorism, were struck out early in 2017.
