Court Asks Senator Abaribe To Produce Nnamdi Kanu Or Risk Jail Sentence

The Federal high court, Abuja, has asked Senator Enyinaya Abaribe and two others to produce leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu in court for the next hearing of his treason case on June 26th 2018 or face jail term.

Recall that Abaribe, Immanuel El-Shalom, a Jewish high priest, and Tochukwu Uchendu, a chartered accountant, stood surety for Kanu when he was granted bail on April 27th last year after spending over a year in detention.

Kanu has however gone underground after the military invasion of his home in Abia state in September last year.

At the resumed hearing of Kanu's treason case yesterday March 28th, Justice Binta Nyako told counsel to the senator and the two others to either produce Kanu in court during the next hearing or forfeit their N100 million bail bond issued when he was grnted bail or go to jail. 

Kanu is facing a four-count amended charge preferred against him and four others, whose trial had since been separated from his. Abaribe and the two others entered an undertaken to produce Kanu before the court to face his trial by standing as sureties for him.
