You Have Till Feb 28 To Provide Kanu, Court Tells Abaribe
A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, to produce Nnamdi Kanu in court on February 28, or show cause why he should not forfeit his N100 million bail bond.
Kanu was in 2015 charged before the court with three others on treasonable felony charges.
The others are the National Coordinator of IPOB, Chidiebere Onwudiwe; an IPOB member, Benjamin Madubugwu; and a former Field Maintenance Engineer seconded to the telecommunication company, MTN, David Nwawuisi.
The court, in a ruling on April 25, 2017, granted bail to Kanu, but rejected others’ bail application.
Senator Abaribe, however stood as surety for Kanu to perfect his bail condition.
The court had at the last proceedings on December 5, 2017, adjourned to yesterday for the sureties to explain why Kanu suddenly stopped attending court and account for his whereabouts.
Abaribe has filed two applications. One is asking the court to discharge him as surety to Kanu. The other wants the court to inspect Kanu’s house in Abia State, where he was said to have been last seen.
The trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako, also granted an application by the prosecution yesterday and ordered that Kanu’s trial be separated from those of his co-defendants.
