A senator representing Abia South, Enyinnaya Abaribe, has requested court to discharge him as surety for Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Nnamdi Kanu has conspicuously been missing and his whereabouts unknown to the government, a situation that raised serious concern for Abaribe who is one of his sureties.
Abaribe filed the application in court on Tuesday.
Recall that Abaribe, prior to the raids by the military, said Kanu had always assured him that he would be in court at adjourned dates.
“He was supposed to appear in court on October 17. It was our job as sureties to produce him in court. We have been speaking with him”, Abaribe had said.
“I spoke with him around August 23. I had to invite him to meeting with the South-east Senate caucus in my home at Obingwa, in Abia.
“We discussed and we told him what we felt and where he was going out of bound and we told him to confine himself to the laws of the land.”
