Former Imo state deputy governor, Gerald Irona, has become a free man, nine days after he was sent to prison in Owerri.
His Special Adviser on Media, Walter Duru, who disclosed this on Friday, said a federal high court in Abuja issued the order of his release on Thursday.
“He was released on Thursday, after a competent federal high court in Abuja gave the order. He is a free man now. I can confirm that it to you now,” he said.
Blueprint had reported that the politician was charged to court by the Imo State police command on a three-count charge.
