  Billedresultat for senator abaribe
Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday ordered Senator Eyninnaya Abaribe, and two others standing as sureties for the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, to produce the IPOB leader in court or risk jail term or forfeit their N300m bail bond.

A lawyer, Mr. Ogechi Ogunna, who appeared for Abaribe, informed the judge ‎that his client had filed a motion seeking to be discharged as Kanu’s surety.

‎The two other sureties, Immanuel Shalum Okabenmabu and Tochukwu Uchendu, were absent from court and not represented by any lawyer.

‎But Justice Nyako said Abaribe’s motion could not be heard until Kanu was produced in court.

The judge gave the senator three options.

She asked  Abaribe to produce the defendant in court and then apply to be discharged as a surety.

She also gave Abaribe the option to forfeit his N100m bail bond.

The third option ‎was for Abaribe to request to be given time to produce the defendant in court.
