Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe obviously quaking with fear for his fate in the coming days over the sudden disappearance of the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra has given the reason why he stood surety for Nnamdi Kanu's bail.
The Senator was taken to task yesterday by his colleagues as the House reconvened yesterday after a two-month recess.
Daily Trust reports that a Federal High Court, Abuja in April, set stringent bail conditions for the secessionist leader who is being tried for treason and Abaribe stepped forward to stand surety for him.
But at yesterday’s session that lasted for about two hours, Abaribe was criticised by his colleagues some of who described his action as “un- senatorial.”
The session chaired by the Senate president, Senator Bukola Saraki, started at 10.51am and ended around 1.pm with the Northern senators engaging their south-east counterparts over IPOB and military actions in the south-east.
The session, according to the report, was kick-started with a briefing by Abaribe on IPOB and the intervention of the military in the south-east geopolitical zone.
“He painted a bad picture of the intervention of the military in the south-east but as soon as he finished talking, a former governor from the North stood up and requested that the military be invited to give their own side of the story. 

“But the suggestion did not scale through because many senators did not accept Abaribe’s account in the first place,” he said.
Another Senator said it was after his briefing that some senators asked him (Abaribe) why he stood as surety for Kanu when he knew too well that he (Kanu) was against the unity of the country.
“Abaribe explained that he did that because the judge included a serving Senator as one of the sureties. He also said that the senator representing Kanu’s constituency, Senator Theodore Orji, was not around as at that time.
He said the attention of the south-east senators were also drawn to videos showing how IPOB members unleashed terror on non-Igbos in Aba, Abia State and other parts of the south-east.
Another source said a senator from the Northeast during the session raised the issue on recent comments by Saraki that the proscription and declaration of IPOB as illegal.
