Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has been arrested by operatives suspected to be of the Department of State Security (DSS).
The lawmaker representing Abia-South Senatorial District at the Senate was said to have been arrested on Friday June 22nd, 2018 at a barbing salon in Apo area of Abuja.
It is not clear why the senator was arrested, but the lawmaker is due to appear before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja on June 26 to explain the whereabouts of leader of the proscribed 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.
