Allow Abaribe access to his lawyers, court orders DSS

JUSTICE Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Tuesday ordered the Department of State Service (DSS) to allow the detained Senator representing Abia South Senatorial District, Senator Eyinaya Abaribe access to his lawyers.

 Justice Nyako’s order followed an oral application made on his behalf by his counsel, Chukwuma-Machukwu Ume (SAN), praying a court order, for the release of Abaribe, who was picked up by the DSS last Friday for undisclosed reasons.
Abaribe is one of the sureties who guaranteed the bail of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu’s where-about has remained unknown after his disappearance since the military invaded his home in Abia State last October, prompting the prosecution counsel, Sylvanus Tahir to ask the court to revoke Kanu’s bail, and that the sureties forfeit their bail bond or be remanded in prison custody until they produce Kanu.
