A Magistrate Court sitting in Enugu had on 08:06:19 granted Bail to all 140 members of Indigenous People of Biafra on grounds of lack of merit in the treasonable Felony Charge preferred against them by the State as the Members pleaded 'Not Guilty' on all the charges.

Recall that they were ambushed and arrested by Nigerian Security Operatives on their way to Nsukka on 22/5/19 for a publicity rally of their forthcoming 30th May event and were since remanded in Prison custody.

On 13th June 2019, the defense counsel to the 140 IPOB members, Barrister Tony Nwoko who has been processing the documents to meet up with the Conditions of the Bail as requested by the Court, was able to get 60 members out from Prison custody.

Our Correspondent Mazi Tony Asomba who had an interaction with the defense counsel, Bar Tony Nwoko, said, he was assured that the remaining 80 members will equally leave the Maximum Prison unfailingly tomorrow 14:6:19. He explained that the procedure to tidying the documents for all 140 members was cumbersome, hence they could go in batches.

More details coming...
