A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has granted detained Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe access to his lawyers
The order came from Justice Binta Nyako who gave the ruling after an oral application by the senator’s counsel, Chukwuemeka Nwachukwu Umeh (SAN) what sought the intervention of the court to the plight of his client.
The legal practitioner drew the attention of the court to the fact that his detained client was arrested and detained by the DSS since Friday last week.
The Court said it was the constitutional right of anyone detained to have access to a lawyer much as it stated that it will not entertain the matter since the facts of his arrest and detention are not before it.
Abaribe had stood surety for Nnamdi Kanu, the missing leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
He was arrested last Friday
