Though the presidential aide failed to specifically mention Abaribe’s name, he made references in his article pointing to the Senate minority leader.

According to Adesina, Abaribe should have been cooling his feet in prison after the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) jumped bail and fled the country.

Recall that the lawmaker stood as surety for Kanu, someone who Adesina said is bent on the dismemberment of the country.

The presidential aide also accused the Abia state lawmaker of inciting violence through his words and action, thereby further fanning the flame of insecurity.

He went on to note that the government is ready to arrest and prosecute people inciting violence through words or action.
