Influential chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and outspoken politician, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has just been released by the DSS few days after his arrested.
The lawmaker representing Abia-South Senatorial District, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, who was arrested by the DSS on Friday and has since been in detention for undisclosed reasons, has just been freed by the Department of State Services (DSS), four days after he was arrested.
According to SaharaReporters
, the outspoken lawmaker's lawyers and associates are currently at the DSS headquarters in Abuja processing the paperwork for his release.
Earlier on Tuesday, Abaribe had appeared before Justice
Binta Murtala-Nyako to defend his decision to stand as one of the three sureties for Kanu, who has not been seen or heard of since September 2017 when the army invaded his home and killed many innocent people.
Abaribe was taken to court by the DSS, and was immediately taken back to the agency's headquarters after the hearing.
IPOB members were in court in huge numbers to show solidarity with Abaribe, and they staged a demonstration outside the court after the hearing, calling for his immediate release with placards and Biafran songs.
It was shortly after the court hearing that Abaribe's lawyers received a phone call from the DSS inviting them to come and process his release.
At the time of filing this report, Abaribe’s lawyers, Chukwuma Ume (SAN), Aloy Ejimakor and Ifeanyi Iboko, as well as his surety, were said to be at the DSS office to formally secure his freedom.
Abaribe is being released on a DSS administrative bond that requires him to produce any civil servant on the rank of a Director with residence in Abuja.
