Nnamdi Kanu: Court Orders Senator Abaribe and Others to Appear in Court

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered Senator Enyinaya Abaribe and two others to appear in court and explain why the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, was absent in court Tuesday to face trial.
Abaribe, Immanuel Okabemadu and Tochukwu Uchendu had guaranteed that Kanu would attend his trial following the bail he was granted by the court to attend to his failing health. In addition, they signed a bail bond of N100 million each that would be forfeited in the event that the defendant failed to appear in court to face trial.
However, when the matter was called Tuesday, the three other defendants were in court except Kanu.
Following the absence of the first defendant, the prosecution counsel Shuaibu Labaran urged the court to revoke the bail granted the first defendant. He argued that Kanu’s failure to attend the day-to-day trial is a serious violation of the law.
He told the court that the matter was adjourned for hearing but given the circumstances of the absence of the first defendant the trial may not hold in the interest of justice.
