After over a year in detention, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu was granted bail by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday, April 25.
Kanu was granted bail on health grounds with strict bail conditions which some have described as ‘unfair’.
Following the court’s verdict, some Biafra supporters across the country have taken to the streets to jubilate.
The atmosphere in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital is that of excitement as pro-Biafra agitators are on the streets celebrating. They came out in their numbers to celebrate Kanu's release.
Aba in Abia state is no different as there is excitement and wild jubilation among the people. Residents of Aba trooped out in Jubilation after reports surfaced that Kanu had been granted bail.
Biafra supporters in Abuja were also not left out of the celebrations.
Following the bail granted to Kanu, there was unusual traffic in Abuja. There was heavy gridlock on the Abia House Junction at Ahmadu Bello way. Many Nigerians parked their cars by the roadside to rejoice with some Biafra supporters who had just come out from the court premises.
