IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu now a fugitive

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday ordered Senator representing Abia south, Enyinaya Abaribe to produce leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnmadi Kanu or forfeit his N100m bond.

Following the non-appearance of Nnamdi Kanu, in court on Tuesday as his treason trial resumed, there have been several questions raised on the fate [legal implications] of Senator Eyninnaya Abaribe, and two others who are standing as his sureties.

The Judge thereafter gave the sureties three options.

Abaribe's lawyer accepted the third option, saying his client would try to acsertain the whereabouts of the IPOB leader.

Binta Nyako, the judge handling the case, had granted Kanu bail in April.

Kanu's co-defendantss were, however, denied bail by the court which described charges against them as very serious.

Justice Nyako, ruling on the motion, told Abaribe that his prayer could not be entertained until Kanu is produced in court.

Shuabu Labaran, counsel for the prosecution, asked that the court revoke his bail due to his absence, and arrest his sureties, Premium Times reports.

Ejiofor had claimed that the military's invasion of his client's home on July 11 led to his disappearance, adding that the military was in the best position to disclose the whereabouts of Kanu.

But Justice Nyako stopped him on grounds that was not the issue before the court.

While adjourning the matter till November 20, 2017, the judge declined to hear various applications brought by the 2nd, 3rd and 4th defendants, but however directed prison authorities to allow the 4th defendant access to his personal physician.
