The senator representing Abia-South District, Enyinnaya Abaribe, was one of three sureties in the bail for the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

But Ababribe is making clear now that he is not liable if Kanu, does not show up in court on October 17 for continuation of his trial for alleged treasonable offences.

The IPOB leader who is currently facing trial for alleged treason, was last seen on September 14 when a clash occurred between members of his group and Nigerian soldiers on an army exercise in Abia State.

Kanu was granted bail in April on health grounds with 12 main conditions, most of which the federal government has accused him of flouting. 

The trial is scheduled to continue on October 17.

Abaribe alleged that the IPOB leader’s disappearance followed the invasion of his home in Abia State by troops of the Nigerian Army.

The senator said the army breached the deal they (sureties) had with the federal government by invading Kanu’s home before the court date, adding that no one could say whether he is dead or alive after the invasion.

He said he had not been able to speak with Kanu since the incident at his home, because the number he used to reach the IPOB leader had been switched off.

According to him, nobody knows Kanu’s whereabouts presently.
