The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has been granted bail.
The bail is the first since the commencement of his trial for alleged treason.
Kanu and three others are facing trail on allegations of treason among others.
The presiding judge, Binta Nyako, gave the order to allow Kanu attend to his ailing health condition.
According to the order, Kanu is to produce three sureties with N100 million each.
He is also expected to not be among a crowd.
The judge said Kanu must never be seen in a crowd of more than 10 people.
“No interviews and no rallies,” said Nyako.
The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, was among those who attended Tuesday’s sitting.
Earlier before the judgment, a mild drama ensued at the Court’s premises as security operatives, prevented former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani- Kayode from gaining entrance into the court to witness the proceedings.
The former Minister sought to get into the court but was blocked by operatives of the Department of State Service, DSS.
Journalists also faced tough hurdle to gain entry into the court room, with a few that managed to squeeze in, ordered to surrender their handsets.
