Senate Minority Leader, Enyinaya Abaribe, has demanded he would stand guarantee again for the confined head of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, given a similar circumstances.
Abaribe expressed this on Wednesday during a meeting on TVC’s Journalists Hangout.
The official clarified that he stood guarantee for Kanu, in light of the fact that it’s anything but a condition forced by the court.
According to Abaribe, the court requested that one of the guarantees should be a Senator, and as the Chairman of the Southeast Senators Caucus then, at that point, he had to bringing to the table himself.
When found out if Senator Ike Ekweremadu, who is presently the Chairman of Southeast Caucus, would consent to remain as sure for Kanu should the need emerge, Abaribe said he would not know.

Abaribe said: “There is a distinction between bouncing bail and getting away for your life. I returned to court and dismissed that based on the standard of ‘last seen’, that the last individuals seen with him were officers of the Nigerian armed force who were attacking his dad’s residence.
“The judge eventually decided that she was disavowing bail and given a warrant of capture, subsequently eliminating us from the obligation of giving him.”
Abaribe was then inquired as to whether he would stand guarantee for Kanu once more, if the IPOB pioneer was offered bail.
He answered: “Assuming the conditions are something similar, why not?
“The first time, the adjudicator said they required a Senator to be important for his guarantees. So if an adjudicator says that again that they need a Senator, i’m not sure why I will not. I’m a Senator and I come from the South East.
“We can’t flee from our obligation. He’s our child. He’s from our state (Abia).”
