The South East Revival Group (SERG) has described the bail granted to the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, as yet another victory for the judiciary, saying that “it proves that some Judges still have conscience and a sense of justice.”

The group in a statement signed by its Convener and national coordinator, Chief Willy Ezugwu then urged the federal government to obey its own court this time around.

"Despite that his bail conditions were too stringent, we commend the judiciary for proving its independence by not standing justice on the head by refusing Nnamdi Kanu bail.

"We hope that this time around the federal government would obey the order of the court and allow the judicial process to be completed.

“If for any reason the government is not satisfied with the ruling of any court, it can choose to appeal rather than being the Judge in its own case.

“President Muhammadu Buhari should show Nigerians that he has become a democrat by ensuring that the rule of law is followed no matter who is involved in any matter, be it criminal or civil.

“Once the rule of law is undermined by undue interference in the duties of the judiciary, the basic tenet of democracy is decimated,” the group said.
