DSS Arrests Senator Abaribe

The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested 63-year-old Senator representing Abia South in the Senate, Eyinnaya Abaribe. The senator was a former Deputy Governor in his state.

He is one of the those who bailed runaway leader of proscribed IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently facing trial for alleged treason. Twice he had been made by the courts to produce Kanu, twice he had failed to do so, pleading for time. It would appear the security operatives have been detailed to step in and restore order in the face of continued tough talk by the IPOB people.

Abaribe who is the Senate Committee on Power, Steel Development and Metallurgy was picked by DSS at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja. His Abuja, Apo residence has been cordoned-off by the DSS
