JUST IN: Massive Protest As Federal High Court Refuses To Grant Senator Abaribe’s Request, Over Alleged Link With IPOB Terrorists

An Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, has turned down a request for the release of Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe, who was arrested by Security Operatives, on June 22.

Recall, that Senator Abaribe is one of the sureties for the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, when the latter was granted bail, in April 2017.

Kanu has however, been missing since September, 2017.

At the previous hearing on Kanu’s case, the Judge, Binta Nyako, had ordered all the sureties, including Senator Abaribe, to produce Kanu or go to jail.

However, a few days to the trial, Abaribe was arrested by Security Operatives, for alleged link with the IPOB members, who have been proscribed as terrorists.

Senator Abaribe has neither been released, nor charged to court, since then.

On Tuesday, the Defence Counsel, Ejiofor, demanded his release.

Ejiofor asked the court to order the Federal Government to release Abaribe, describing his arrest as illegal and unconstitutional.

Nonetheless, in a ruling, Mrs. Nyako said that she could not give the order for the Senator’s release, because she was not the one who ordered his arrest.

According to the Judge, the circumstances that resulted in Abaribe’s recent arrest, were not before her.

She expressed dissatisfaction with the Counsels on both sides, about their manner of handling the case, and told them she would not mind prolonging the matter, if they themselves were not serious about carrying it forward.

Abaribe who was escorted to the court by Security Operatives was not allowed to talk to Journalists, after the matter.

The situation resulted in a protest, with IPOB members demanding for his immediate release.
