A FEDERAL High Court presided over by Justice Binta Nyako in Abuja yesterday ordered Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe, and others who stood sureties for Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPoB) to pay the sum of N100m each into the court’s account as they had signed in Kanu’s bail bond before his release from Kuje Prisons in April 2017, adding that the money must be paid within two months.

According to Nyako, Abaribe and the others who stood surety for the IPoB leader should pay the money for their failure to produce him in court.

The judge gave the order in her ruling on an application to amend the conditions of the bail, which included a bail bond of N100m each with documents of their landed assets deposited in court as make-weight.

However, hearing of the motions filed by the sureties challenging the duties imposed on them to produce Nnamdi Kanu was slated March 28.

It will be recalled that the IPOB leader recently claimed to have been in Israel since he allegedly fled Nigerian after his home at Afarakwu in Abia State was invaded by security agents.
