The Federal High Court Abuja on Thursday ordered the immediate release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Justice Niyi Ademola at a hearing in the case filed against the Federal government by his lawyer, Vincent Obeta agreed that Kanu was being held unlawfully by DSS and ordered his immediate release.

Only yesterday the Magistrate court in Wuse zone 2, Abuja, dropped all charges of criminal conspiracy, intimidation and leading an unlawful society brought against Kanu by the federal government after the DSS appealed to the court to strike out his case so he can be taken to a higher court that can entertain charges bordering on terrorism.
