Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), may regain freedom today, Thursday.
This is as a result of an emergency hearing hurriedly scheduled to take place this Thursday morning.
It was learnt on Wednesday that the hearing could open the door for Kanu’s release on bail.
This was confirmed by the counsel for the Nigerian government in the matter, who was quoted to have said that the develpment was as a result of the various appeals from prominent Igbo leaders on the matter.
It would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had said on Friday, November 19 that he would consider the unconditional release of the IPOB leader as sought by elder statesmen from the South-East.
Buhari had, however, added that such a request was a difficult option to weigh but assured that he would give it a thought.
