Senator representing Abia South, EYINNAYA ABARIBE, who is one of the three persons standing as sureties for the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, NNAMDI KANU, has pleaded with the Federal High Court in Abuja to give him more time to produce the IPOB leader.
After informing Justice BINTA NYAKO on Tuesday that he had no information about KANU’s whereabouts, Mr ABARIBE was forced to request for time to produce the defendant in court.
His lawyer, Mr. OGECHI OGUNNA had initially told the judge that the senator had filed a motion seeking to be discharged as a surety for the defendant.
However, Justice NYAKO said the senator had three options, namely to produce the defendant in court and then apply to be discharged as a surety.
The other option the judge gave was for ABARIBE to be ready to forfeit his 100million naira bail bond, while the third option was to ask to be given time to produce the defendant.
The two other sureties were not represented in court on Tuesday.
