The Convener of Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, has been granted bail.

A Kano State Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday granted his bail application 67 days after he was remanded in Kano Prison.

Adeyanju was re-arrested in December, 2018 over the allegations that he was involved in a murder case in Kano in 2005.

The human rights activist was discharged and acquitted in 2009 after a protracted trial before the Kano State High Court.

But when the matter came up on Monday morning, Adeyanju was granted bail in the sum of N500,000, including two sureties and told to deposit his passport with the court.

One of his associates, Oluyemi Fasipe, who confirmed his bail to reporters, said the bail bond consisted of N500,000 including two sureties with landed property in Kano.
