The Federal Government has told a Federal High Court in Abuja that run away leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is hiding with lawmaker representing Abia south senatorial district, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe.
Mr. Shuaibu Labaran accused Senator Abaribe of preventing Kanu from appearing in court.
He accused the lawmaker of being slow to withdraw his bail bond particularly after Kanu started to violate his bail conditions before September 11 when Abaribe said they last had contact.
He said, “The applicant failed to apply to the court timeously, stating on oath that the defendant bound by recognizance to appear before this court had violated the bail condition given by this court.
“My lord, the surety has failed woefully to abide by the terms of the contract he entered into with this court and therefore cannot claim frustration.
“My lord, we urge that the court hold, that surety having refused to do what he ought to have done pursuant to section 174 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 aided and abetted the 1st defendant in the flouting of the bail conditions of this court and should forfeit the bond he entered into.”
