Biafra - I Don’t Know Where Nnamdi Kanu Is says Abaribe

The senator representing Abia South Senatorial District, Enyinnaya Abaribe,denies claim that Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, is in his custody.

Abaribe had earlier sought in an application to withdraw from being one of the sureties of Nnamdi Kanu, but the federal government described the application as too late.

Naija News gathered that the Federal Government, however, stated in its counter-affidavit that Abaribe was aware that Kanu has flouted the bail conditions given by the court on April 24, 2017 before September 11 when he claimed to have lost contact with the defendant.

The counter-affidavit read in part, “That it was at this point at violating the conditions at the bail that the senator surety ought to surrender the 1st defendant and or bring up this application; That this application is belated and ill-timed;

“The applicant failed to apply to the court timeously, stating on oath that the defendant bound by recognizance to appear before this court had violated the bail condition given by this court.”

The prosecuting counsel, Mr. Shuaibu Labaran, argued that Abaribe “failed woefully” by allegedly aiding and abetting Kanu to violate his bail conditions.

Abaribe, however, denied knowing Kanu’s whereabouts.

“I don’t know where he is. But that is a question that will be resolved by the suit we have instituted,” he said. Biafra - I Don’t Know Where Nnamdi Kanu Is says Abaribe.
