Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe representing
Abia South Senatorial District, has asked the
court to discharge him from being the
surety of leader of the Indigenous People of
Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In an application filed against the Federal
Government, Nnamdi Kanu, and his co-
defendants, Senator Abaribe is asking the
court to make an order discharging him as
surety to Kanu. Abaribe prayed the court to
discharge him entirely from the incidence
of bail of Kanu.
He is also asking for a discharge of the bond
used for Kanu’s bail and a refund of N100
million or any other bond paid to the court
sequel to the bail.
The grounds upon which Senator Abaribe
sought the reliefs include that the Nigerian
army during a raid at the residence of the
IPOB leader engaged in a fracas with
members of the group which has been
proscribed by the federal government.
Abaribe said since the raid by the Nigerian
Army, the first defendant has not been seen
or reached.

He also said Kanu is yet to make any public
appearance or any statement since the raid.
Abaribe said: “Since the afore stated visit of
the Nigerian Army to the residence of the
first defendant from September 11, 2017,
the second respondent in this suit has not
been seen again nor reached on phone the
applicant neither is he reported in any news
media as seen by any person nor made any
statement on any issue.”
The Senator said since September 20, the
report in the media is that the first
respondent (Federal Government) has
proscribed IPOB an organization led by
Kanu and declared the organization a
terrorist organization.
He said security agencies of the Federal
Government are interested in the second
“The activities of the Nigerian Army as
affecting the first respondent are matters of
state secret incapable of being unravelled
by the applicant which activities has put the
second respondent out of the reach of the
applicant such that the applicant cannot
reasonably be expected to produce the
second respondent before this court at any
subsequent date.
The apllicant lacks capacity to produce a
person stated by the first respondent to be
ma member of a terrorist organization or
any person who the first respondent is
reported to be interested in his
whereabouts in the aftermath of the
military operation in Abia state,” Abaribe
said in his application.
Senator Abaribe, a Jewish Rabbi and
traditional ruler stood as surety for the
IPOB leader in August when he was granted
bail by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal
High Court.
The surety and bond of N100 million each

Abaribe and the two others helped in the
