Biafra: Senator Abaribe requests more time to produce Nnamdi Kanu
Senator Eyninnaya Abaribe, one of those standing as surities to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Tuesday appealed to an Abuja Federal High Court for more time to produce the IPOB leader.
Abaribe, who is represented by his counsel, Ogechi Ogunna, said his appeal was predicated on the fact that he had no information about Kanu’s whereabouts.
‎Responding, the trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako said Abaribe had three options .
According to Nyako, Abaribe should produce the defendant in court and then apply to be discharged as a surety.
Secondly, Abaribe should be ready to forfeit his N100m bail bond and thirdly, the lawmaker was given time to produce the defendant in court.
Replying Justice Nyako, Ogunna said, “He (Abaribe) is not in a position to do any of these.”
But the judge maintained that Abaribe must opt for one of the three options.
Against this background, Ogunna opted to be given time to produce Kanu.
Abaribe, had earlier applied to be discharged as surety to Kanu, following his alleged disappearance.
