BEVERLY HILLS, November 14, (THEWILL) – The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court has threatened to order the arrest of senator Eyinnaya Abaribe and another surety who undertook to produce Nnamdi Kanu ahead of his bail in April, 2017.
Apart from Abaribe, two others who stood surety for the IPOB Leader are a Jewish priest, Immanuel Shalom; and an accountant and Abuja resident, Tochukwu Uchendu.
On Wednesday, the court also varied the bail condition given to Kanu in his trial for alleged treason.
The court presided by Binta Nyako said it was varying the bail conditions because Abaribe’s lawyer, Chukwuma-Machukwu Ume, told the court that the senator was attending an oversight function and could not attend the trial.
“I have taken the view that the oversight function is more important than this hearing.
“I do not have a proceeding against the sureties. All I want is for them to produce my Nnamdi Kanu.
“In this proceeding where this men have lost my Nnamdi Kanu, they are going to be in my trouble, because I gave him to them.”
On the varied bail condition, the judge ordered the three sureties to deposit the bond of N100 million each to the court registrar within two months and said the court would make further directives after hearing the current applications by the sureties.
THEWILL recalls that Kanu was recently seen in Isreal in a video intended among other things to prove his existence.
