- Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe who signed Kanu's bail said they are in trouble
- He said export of made-in-Aba goods has dropped
- He called those supporting Kanu to be careful
Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe who was one of the persons that signed Nnamdi Kanu’s bail has said that doing so has put him into trouble.
The Guardian reports that Abaribe who is the leader of Southeast caucus in the National Assembly said the exportation of Made-In -Aba products have drastically reduced due to the agitation for an independent Biafra state.
Kanu who is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was released after he met his bail condition but his whereabouts remains unknown since Operation Python Dance.
The senator spoke at the Made-In-Aba Products Fashion Show held as part of the 2017 Convention of Abia State National Association of North America (ASNA) at Hilton Hotel JFK, New York on Saturday, October 8.
He noted that buyers and exporters of Aba products stopped coming to the state due to security risk posed by the Biafra agitation and military operation.
He said: “I am a Nigerian Senator and not that of Biafra. We had advised Kanu, reminding him that his rights end where those of others begin. We are now in trouble, because we do not know where he is and how to contact him. Those that support Kanu’s agitation should think twice.”
He called on the people to be pragmatic and that that “we should trust that our leaders, both elected and not elected can get the best for us.

“We think we need Biafra, but this Biafra should be that of the mind that represents our ingenuity and our innate quality for hard work and enterprise, especially as oil proceeds keep dwindling.
“Igbo are largest and highest investors in the country, contributing to the development of wherever they reside and operate. In Lagos alone, we have built and developed about ten different markets from which over N3b are generated on daily basis,” Abaribe added.
Meanwhile, traditional rulers in Afaraukwu community in Umuahia North local government area of Abia state spoke about the disappearance on Kanu and his parents.
