After three months, DSS releases Nnamdi Kanu's foster mother.
A popular supporter of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Madam Ukamaka Ejezie popularly known as Mama Biafra has regained her freedom after more than three months in Directorate of State Security (DSS) custody.
The Septuagenarian said to be the foster mother of the detained leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was set free on Saturday evening.
Without any tangible reason, she was arrested and detained during Kanu's last court appearance in Abuja on May 18.
Kanu's counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor confirmed her release in a statement obtained by The Nation on Sunday.
He said: "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. We 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.
