President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief John Nnia Nwodo has appealed to Federal Government, to release Senator Eyinaya Abaribe who was arrested by operatives of the Department of State Service DSS yesterday.
Abaribe was picked on Friday in Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, over issue relating to the bail bond he signed for leader of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Nwodo, in a press statement issued in reaction to the development of Abaribe's arrest, said that the circumstances prevailing at the time of the disappearance of Nnamdi Kanu are beyond the contemplation of the law, and that a surety can guarantee the production of an accused person.
He also claimed that the Army in the name of "Operation Python Dance" invaded Nnamdi's home and destabilized normalcy there.
According to him, "It is only the security agency that can disclose Nnamdi's whereabouts. Senator Abaribe has no capacity, nor has any surety in the circumstances to know the whereabouts of Nnamdi Kanu. What happened in Umahia was an invasion, a war of a kind.
"Nnamdi may have been killed or captured in the imbroglio or even escaped into hiding. The onus lies on the security forces to disclose his whereabouts.
He also bemoaned the manner with which the judiciary is handling legal matters, saying "it is beginning to tow the line of the executive by throwing the law overboard in matters that affect the South East."
