Mr Chidi Lloyd has been released.The embattled Majority Leader of the Rivers State House of Assembly finally regained his freedom at about 4pm on Wednesday, after being granted bail of N10 million.
A mild drama occurred outside the court yesterday when youths numbering about 2000 prevented security operatives from taking Lloyd away,insisting that he had been granted bail and should be allowed to go free.
The deputy speaker of the house,Mr. Leyii Kwanee said this,
We have fulfilled all the bail conditions and Lloyd has been released. We have been at the Port Harcourt Prison to ensure his release. By tomorrow (today), his physician will examine his health condition.
On Monday, we will also approach the court to appeal for a waiver of one of the bail conditions, which is the depositing of his International Passport with the court.
