Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, has fixed Nov.20 for Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe and two other sureties to produce Indigenous People of Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu for trial.
The judge gave the order when Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Counsel to Kanu , told the court he could not explain the where-about of his client.
Justice Nyako said the sureties’ failure to produce kanu would compel the court to invoke the forfeiture of their N100 million bail bond each.
The judge, therefore, gave Ogechi Ogbonna, counsel to senator Abaribe up until November 20 to bring Kanu for trial.
In another development, Justice Yusuf Halilu of the FCT High Court, Jabi has granted the application of Farouk Lawan, a former member of the House of Representatives, seeking transfer of his case from Justice Angela Otaluka of FCT Lugbe High Court.
Justice Halilu said that the administration of criminal justice must be followed in the interest of justice, adding that the transfer of cases from one court to the other remains the administrative powers of the chief judge
The judge will now hear the case in his court from October 24.
