The bail granted to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has brought about mixed reactions from the Nigerian public.
In the wake of the judgment pronounced by Justice Nyako granting bail to the IPOB leader, Biafrans took to the streets of Port Harcourt and aba jubilating and expressing their joy over the judgement, even though some Nigerians opined that the conditions attached to the bail are too stringent to fulfil.
Speaking on Breez FM Reporters Diary this morning, a legal practitioner Barrister Abel Kosoko described kanu’s bail conditions as bondage in freedom.
Speaking further, the legal practitioner was of the opinion that recent disobedient of security agencies of government to bail granted offenders, especially in the case of the ex-National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki is a cause for concern as this amounts to the subjugation of the rule of law.
However, in a divergent opinion, another lawyer, Barrister Ibukun Fasanmi questions the mentality of Nigerians, as he believes the charges brought against Kanu are too weighty to be handled with leniency.
