The lawmaker representing Abia-South Senatorial Disrict, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has been arrested by agents of the Department of State Security. According to reports, the arrest was made on Friday morning at a barbing saloon frequently visted by the Senator in the Apo Area of Abuja.
According to insiders, it is not clear why the senator was arrested but the source revealed that the arrest may be as a result of the senator’s persitent criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Concurrently, the Senator is set to appear before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High court, Abuja, on June 26 to disclose the whereabouts of leader of the fugitive Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB}, Nnamdi Kanu.
Abaribe and two others had stood as a surety as part of the bail conditions for Kanu, whose whereabouts has remained unknown.
Justice Nyako fixed the date after the court ordered the prosecution to serve the sureties with an earlier order of court demanding them to appear in court and explain the whereabouts of Kanu or show cause why they should not forfeit their bail amount.
