BIAFRA: Kanu meets bail condition as Jewish Priest, Sen. Abaribe sign bail bond

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu has fulfilled his bail conditions described by many as being stringent and almost impossible to meet.

The conditions for the bail was made possible by a Jewish High Priest, Immanuu-El Shalom; Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe and an Abuja based Chartered Accountant, Tochukwu Uchendu.

An Abuja Federal High Court presided over by Justice Binta Nyako had on Tuesday granted bail to the detained leader of IPOB group, which is canvasing for a separate state from Nigeria.

While she said the bail was granted based on health reasons, she however said the condition will be a bail bond of N100million each to be signed by a prominent Jewish leader, a serving senator and a person who resides and owns property in Abuja.
