|The 36 Accused IPOB Brethren after Court Session|
ENUGU— The Magistrate Court sitting in Enugu on the 12th August, 2016, presided over the case of 36 Biafrans arrested after convening their family meeting at Ngwo by operatives of the Nigerian Police Force(NPF).
The 36 brethren who were arrested on 24th April, 2016 were taken to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad(SARS) in Enugu from where there were transferred to the state Criminal and Investigation Department(CID) and then taken to court on 28th April, 2016 when they were granted bail.
The resumed hearing of their case today received positive impact, as the presiding judge struck out every charge against them and ordered that they have been acquitted and discharged.
Recall that the last session was stalled owing to the absence of the Prosecutor of the NPF in Court.
Barrister Egbonwonu during the last court session posited that the Prosecutor had tendered for the court to grant him a long adjournment pending when he receives a consent from the Attorney General(AG) to proclaiming IPOB as an unlawful society.

Citing section 101, 30(2) of the Criminal law of the Magistrate, the defense lawyer prayed the court that failure of the Prosecutor to produce a consent will be warranted that his clients be discharged. The pleacof IPOB lawyer was granted today.
Todays victory is another welcomed development after IPOB brethren who were arrested on the 9th of February at National High School, Aba, regained their freedom yesterday.
The struggle for freedom does not end with their release, until Nnamdi Kanu and Biafra as a Nation is free from captivity.
