Its been more than two weeks since Ivory Coast's former President Laurent Gbagbo was acquitted.

The acquittal at the International Criminal Court on crimes against humanity is making waves in the West African nation.

Some celebrate his pending release but others fear a repeat of the deadly 2010-2011 post-election violence that led him to The Hague. More than 3,000 people were killed.

Ivory Coast faces its next election in 2020, and some Gbagbo supporters suggest he will run again if he is allowed to come home.

Prosecutors said they plan to appeal the acquittal and that Gbagbo should only be freed under strict conditions designed to ensure he returns to court for hearings.

A hearing on Friday will discuss the appeal against his release.
