afrika owes

New York — A source close to NewsOne has informed us that alleged student turned gangbanger Afrika Owes has been freed from prison on $25k bail by Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem.

A judge cleared the church to provide the bail money after the church’s board members voted to raise the money for the Harlem resident.

Owes was one of 14 alleged Harlem gang members arrested during a massive gang sweep in February. She was charged with helping boyfriend and alleged gang leader Jaquan Layne sell guns and drugs from Rikers where he was serving time.
