A political analyst and critic, Deji Adeyanju has been granted bail by a Kano State High Court on Monday after spending 67 days in detention.
Adeyanju has been remanded in a Kano prison after he was rearrested and charged for culpable homicide by the Nigeria Police Force over a case said to have been decided upon by the Kano State High Court in 2009.
Adeyanju’s bail comes with the condition he must provide two sureties and N500,000.
He was also ordered to turn in his international passport to the court.
Confirming the bail, Oluyemi Fasipe, one of Adeyanju’s allies, said: “I can confirm to you that he has been granted bail. The bail bond consists of N50,000 and sureties with landed properties in Kano.”
