Senate Minority Leader, Enyinaya Abaribe, has declared that he is willing to stand in as surety again for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Recall that Enyinaya Abaribe initially stood in as surety for Nnamdi Kanu when he was arrested by the Federal government as he placed about N100million as bond.
Abaribe has stated that he won’t think twice about providing surety for Nnamdi Kanu again if the need arises. He made his submission in an interview on TVC’s Journalists Hangout.

Abaribe said: “There is a difference between jumping bail and escaping for your life. I went back to court and deposed that on the basis of the principle of ‘last seen’, that the last people seen with him were soldiers of the Nigerian army who were invading his father’s residence.
“The judge ultimately ruled that she was revoking bail and issued a warrant of arrest, thereby removing us from the responsibility of providing him.”
“If the circumstances are the same, then why not?
“The first time, the judge said they needed a Senator to be part of his sureties. So if a judge says that again that they need a Senator, I don’t see why I won’t. I am a Senator and I come from the South East.
“We can’t run away from our responsibility. He’s our son. He’s from our state (Abia).”
