The Federal High Court, Abuja, has ordered Senator Enyinaya Abaribe and two others who stood as sureties for the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to produce him.

Justice Binta Nyako, who issued the order, said the sureties will lose their 120 million bond they each deposited in the absence of Kanu, if they failed to produce him.

The court said the sureties should explain to them why the IPOB leader did not show up for his trial.

According to the prosecutor,  Sulaiman Labaran, Kanu had violated his bail conditions as well as failing to appear for the trial.

Labaran equally prayed the court to revoke Kanu’s bail and compel him to appear before the court.

On his part, counsel to Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told the court that he had filed a suit asking the court to mandate the Nigerian Army to produce his clients whom he has not seen.

The Nigerian Army allegedly invaded the home of the IPOB leader during a military exercise codenamed Operation Python Dance II in Abia state.

Kanu, who is facing trial for treason, was granted bail in April, 2017.
