Abaribe Was Arrested For ‘Aiding And Abetting IPOB’ - Counsel by Blue3k2: 10:13pm On Jun 23, 2018
From Deji Elumoye in Abuja

Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe’s Lawyer, Mr. Chukwuma-Machukwu Ume, SAN, has said his client was picked up by operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, for allegedly aiding and abetting the proscribed Independent People of Biafra, IPOB.

Addressing a news conference on Saturday in Abuja, Ume claimed he got to know about Abaribe’s offence when the DSS operatives stormed his client’s residence on Friday evening.

He said when the security operatives shortly after arresting Abaribe on Friday stormed his Apo residence to conduct a search, “I specifically requested to know if they had a search warrant and they answered in the affirmative.”

“At that point, they showed me a search warrant signed by one Magistrate Kutigi and on the warrant it was written that my client was arrested for allegedly aiding and abetting the proscribed Independent People of Biafra, IPOB.”

According to him, the operatives refused to give him a copy of the search warrant but only went ahead to do a thorough house search from 5pm to 11.30pm during which everything in the house was turned upside down.

Said he: “They claimed to be searching for arms and ammunition at my client’s house with him in attendance but at the end of their search no arm or ammunition or Ghana Must Go Bag was found there.

“What they succeeded in finding in the House were only 23 items including three laptops and phones which were all documented and signed for by the leader of the operatives. They refused to release the laptops one of which contained question paper for an examination to be taken on Monday and the phones, one of which belong to an American citizen”.

He said the security operatives had denied him and his client’s doctor access to him up till Saturday morning adding,”we made efforts for bus to see my client because he needs to have access to his drugs but we were turned back so as we speak he remains incommunicado.”

Ume said he would approach the court “if by Monday his client was not released, to press for the enforcement of his fundamental rights “.

He also said that his client who stood surety for Nnamdi Kanu, leader of outlawed IPOB at an Abuja High Court, is expected to be in court at the next hearing of the case on Tuesday, June 26 “but with this arrest I will have to inform the court about his arrest.”

Ume warned government not to stifle opposition saying, “because I belief my client is being hunted because of his opposing views like other senators like Dino Melaye, Shehu Sani who have been critical of the policies of the present administration.”

Hmm the June 26 trial better not boring like the last few. All they do is ask same repetitive questions then ajourn again. The judge doesnt buy fact army kidnapped or kill him. She won't collect N100m bail money or jail surities. Just declare Kanu wanted already so the case can move on. The Nigerian legal system moves at snail speed.

They should make an example of him.

Next time nobody would be stupid enough to be collecting Salary monthly as a Nigerian Senator, yet supporting IPOB and standing surety for a secessionist leader who turned out to be a fraudulent coward.

Is it now a crime to stand surety? The court has the final say and not all these extra judicial shenanigans that makes this country a banana republic.

Kanu escaped with his connivance as he has also been found to have been aiding and abetting a terrorist group, he is most likely to have booked a residence in kuje prison.

Was Nnamdi Kanu a secessionist leader?

If yes, did Senator Iberibe stand surety for him or not?

If yes, should a Nigerian Lawmaker of all people be putting his neck on the line for a secessionist leader whether his org is proscribed or not?

If your brain still answered yes to the last question, just sell that textbook because your brains have evidently collapsed.

Abaribe was arrested for aiding and abetting IPOB? I will keep an open mind. But I hope the authorities know what they are doing because if this turns out to be nothing, it will be seen as a full assault on democracy by the Buhari administration on a Senator who has been critical of of this administration.

You're mentally challened you wouldn't understand. You called mumbo jumbo becsuse you could wrap your head around simple point. The judge should declare Kanu wanted or missing. That would force investigation to find out truth about what happened to your director. The police woukd then have to explain why his parents are gone aswell since it happened same time period.

I hope this helps. I know most you IPOBs can't think for yourselves. The director isnt around to guide you sadly.
