Edited by Steve Oko

The four IPOB members charged together with Nnamdi Kanu and detained at Kuje prison, Abuja d have just been released.
They left the prison gates around 6pm, Thursday evening (July 5, 2018) after meeting all their bail terms, including depositing a cash bond of Five Million Naira each, making it total of Twenty Million for all the four accused persons.
They are Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Bright Chimezie, David Nwawusi, and Benjamin Madubugwu, who were charged with offenses relating to “preparations to secede from Nigeria” and detained without bond since 2015.
The cash bond was paid yesterday by by way of bank draft to the Registrar of the Federal High Court in Abuja by the lawyers representing IPOB in the matter. It was upon meeting this final term that the release papers were signed by Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako just hours ago.
This correspondent gathered that posting the cash bond has been particularly difficult to meet, prompting the apprehension at some point that the amount was too excessive to meet.
The lawyers, amongst whom are Barrister Aloy Ejimakor, P. A. Ejiofor, Maxwell Opara and Prince Mandela have been processing their bail since the defendants were granted bail on 25th June, 2018.
The next hearing date for their trial is set for 14th November, 2018.
