Nnamdi Kanu’s disappearance: Sen Abaribe, two others to forfeit N100m each

Senator Eyinnnya Abaribe and two others, who stood surety for the fleeing leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu are to forfeit N100million over their inability to produce Kanu in court.

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja gave the order for temporary forfeiture of the N100m bail bond, which each of the sureties signed when they took Kanu on bail in April last year.

Kanu, who is being tried for treasonable felony offence, was granted bail last year, with Abaribe, a Jewish leaders, Emmanuel Shallon and Tochukwu Uchendu standing as his sureties.

At the resumed hearing of the case on Wednesday, Abaribe and Uchendu were abent in court. They were also unable to produce Kanu, as earlier ordered by the court.

In view of the development, Justice Nyako, who had threatened to order the arrest of the two sureties, who were absent in court, later changed her mind and directed the conversion of the bail bond, signed by each of the sureties, to cash and paid into the court.
