Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe and three other sureties for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra has been ordered by the Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday to pay the sum of N100m into the court account within two months for being unable to produce the missing IPOB leader.



Justice Binta Nyako gave the order on Wednesday in a ruling in which she amended the conditions of the bail she had in April 2017 granted Kanu.

The leader of IPOB is being prosecuted before the court on charges of treasonable felony.

His trial had been earlier separated from that of his co-accused following his disappearance after a military invasion of his home in Afara-Ukwu, Umuahia, in Abia State, on September 14, 2017.

The sureties who guaranteed his bail had been mandated to sign a bail bond of N100m each which was backed by their landed assets whose documents were deposited in court.
