Senator Enyinaya Abaribe (PDP-Abia South) has asked the court to discharge him from the suretyship, bond and recognizance of the bail of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The lawmaker prayed the court to discharge him entirely from the incidence of bail of Kanu.
Abaribe 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 senator said since the raid by the Nigerian Army on the residence of Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB leader has not been seen or reached.
Abaribe also said Kanu is yet to make any public appearance or any statement since the raid.
He said: ”Since the aforestated 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 neither is he reported in any news media as seen by any person nor made any statement on any issue.”
Senator Abaribe, a Jewish Rabbi and a traditional ruler stood surety for Kanu in August when he was granted bail by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court.
The surety and bond of N100 million each, which was made available by Senator Abaribe and the two others, helped in the release of Kanu from Kuje Prison in Abuja where he was held for over a year.
