Why DSS Arrested Senator Abaribe
Chidima Ubani, one of the aides of Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe of Abia state has raised a group, “Free Abaribe” calling on DSS to release the senator.
Abaribe was arrested for failing to present leader of the Independent People Of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu in court.
Abaribe stood as surety for the runaway Kanu with the sum of N100 million bail but since Kanu disappeared Abaribe had been the one appearing before the court.
As Ubani put it, “Some time ago, DSS officials walked into his office, ordering him to follow them to see their boss, Abaribe the fearless lion taught them exactly how to officially invite a distinguished senator for questioning through the office of the Senate president, they angrily left his office in shame.
Just when they couldn’t find any reason to silence or intimidate the civilian general, they arrested him and said he is sponsoring and aiding a proscribed group, the IPOB, with weapons and ammunition, they went for a search in his house but couldn’t find anything.
Then why still detaining him even after confirming that they got nothing incriminating from him? Is it now a crime to speak out against evil? Is it now a crime for a man to stand and uphold his integrity?
