At Last, 6 varsity students, lecturer regain freedom
Finally, six students and a lecturer of Madonna University , Elele who were remanded in prison since February, over comments the management of the institution claimed was injurious to them, have regained their freedom..
The students and lecturer were Wednesday, granted bail by the Federal High Court 2 sitting in Awka and presided over by Justice Babatunde Quadri.
They were arrested several months by security operatives who first took them to the Okija campus of the university where they were detained in a police cell before being sent to Awka Prison.
The prosecution counsel, Mr. J. N. Oboh who did not object the bail granted to the defendants during the proceedings, however, insisted that they should sign an undertaking to be of good behaviour.
The defendants were given two months from Wednesday, to perfect their bail conditions as it was gathered that the courts would be on vacation from next week.
