The judge said with this amendment, the sureties were now required to deposit cash of N100 million into the court’s bank account.

 

“The order directing the sureties to pay the money is an order of interim forfeiture’’, she said.

 

The sureties had argued that Kanu’s disappearance was not unconnected with the invasion of his home by the military and not orchestrated by them.

 

The military had in a special operation clashed with IPOB members in Afara-Ukwu, Umuahia, in Abia State, on Sept. 14, 2017 leading to Kanu’s escape from the country.

 

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Kanu and three others are been tried on charges of treasonable felony.
