Senator Enyinaya Abaribe Given 3 Conditions As He Tried To Apply For Withdrawal As Nnamdi Kanu's Surety

Enyinaya Abaribe, senator representing Abia south, has asked the federal high court to discharge him as a surety of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

But the court has given him three options: 
one, produce Kanu in court and then apply to be discharged as a surety; 

two, forfeit his N100m bail bond; and three, request for more time to produce the IPOB leader.

Kanu is being prosecuted for alleged treason and is to appear before the court at its resumed sitting on Tuesday.

Abaribe was one of his sureties when he was released on bail in April.

He had asked for a discharge of the bond used for Kanu’s bail and a refund of N100 million paid to the court sequel to the bail.

Abaribe sought his relief on the ground that Kanu has been missing since soldiers of the Nigerian army raided his Abia residence.

“Since the aforestated visit of the Nigerian army to the residence of the first defendant from September 11, 2017, the second respondent in this suit has not been seen again nor reached on phone the applicant neither is he reported in any news media as seen by any person nor made any statement on any issue,” the senator said in his application.

“The activities of the Nigerian army as affecting the first respondent are matters of state secret incapable of being unravelled by the applicant which activities has put the second respondent out of the reach of the applicant such that the applicant cannot reasonably be expected to produce the second respondent before this court at any subsequent date.

“The applicant lacks capacity to produce a person stated by the first respondent to be a member of a terrorist organization or any person who the first respondent is reported to be interested in his whereabouts in the aftermath of the military operation in Abia state.”

Kanu’s and his co-defendants — Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe — are facing criminal charges bordering on treasonable felony, conspiracy, among others.

    1. Dear Senator, u shld have applied to be discharged as a surety when Kanu started breaking the rules eg public appearance, holding meetings etc. Now u want to chicken out. How can u be a surety for someone like Kanu. His eyes alone looks evil.

  2. This man just koba himself by himself.

  3. LMAO.singing* Trouble dey sleep, yanga go dey wake am . Weti ei they find? Wahala ei dey fine,wahala him go get am ooo. You have not seen something yet. Who send you to go stand as surety for the almighty kanu ?

  4. See gobe, Kanu come out of hiding oh.

  5. Gheen ghen ghen..osetigo. Where is kanu or 100million flushed down the drain. As for me and my household, o won't surety any one raaararaa

  6. Lol senator has entered one chance
    So he didn't think deeply about the pros and cons before standing surety.

  7. How would you surety someone you cannot predict his movement. That was a costly mistake

  8. What is One hundred million Naira forfeiture to a serving Nigerian senator?

  9. A serving senator gets a 100million Naira fine, is that one a fine!? When someone is marrying a 93 year old former senator!, what's there if not the money talkless of someone who's hand is still very much in the cookie jar. Na still state money he go forfeit and that won't pull a hair on his body.

  10. How I wish he's to stand in Kanu's stead. Shebi you were doing solidarity for him before ni. Useless etiti

  11. A sitting Senator of the FRN is standing as surety to a person who is being tried for crimes described as treasonable felony amongst others....



  12. Abaribie that can't do anything for anyone. Then with the speed he used to stand surety for an unstable man lends credence to the fact that it was all for political gains. Ask Him how many youths in his village in ohuru he has empowered let alone his senatorial district. Mean man. Abeg they should not give him back the money

  13. He should be able to recover the money from Kanu after all IPOB must have capable sponsors.
