A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday granted bail to the leader of a pro-Biafra group, Nnamdi Kanu, on health grounds.

Kanu was granted bail following a bail application filed by his lawyer after part of the charges filed against the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader and three others were struck out by the court.

The other accused persons are the National Coordinator of IPOB, Mr. Chidiebere Onwudiwe; an IPOB member, Benjamin Madubugwu and one David Nwawuisi.

However, only Kanu was granted bail by Justice Binta Nyako on Tuesday.

The judge barred the IPOB leader from granting press interview while on bail.

She also warned Kanu not to participate in any rally or be found in a crowd of more than 10 persons during the course of his  bail.
