Mrs. Ukamaka Ejezie, popularly called Mama Biafra, has been released by Nigeria’s Department of State Services (DSS).
She was released on Sunday.
Her release was made known in a statement the leader of Kanu’s legal team, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, posted on his Twitter handle and Facebook page on Sunday.
Ejiofor wrote, “I am very delighted to inform you all that Mrs. Ukamaka Ejezie (Mama Biafra) has regained her freedom. She is now out of DSS dungeon. Thank thee Chukwuokike Abiama for this huge success.
“We are not relenting, every prisoner of conscience, including our indefatigable client, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will soon regain their freedom.
“We in the legal team, are doing everything legally permissible to make it happen, we are not resting on our oars at all, be assured. Forward ever and backward never! We move.”
Mama Biafra was arrested in Abuja on May 18 during Kanu’s last court appearance.
