A former senator who represented Kaduna Central in the Senate, Shehu Sani, said he taught the Minority Leader of the Senate, Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe how to live in prison should he be prosecuted over his pro-Biafra activism.
Sani said he used his years of experience in KiriKiri (Lagos); Port Harcourt (Rivers) and Aba (Abia) prisons to lecture his friend, Abaribe.
He disclosed this on his Facebook page on Wednesday where he shared a throwback photo of himself discussing with Abaribe on the floor of the Red Chamber.
He explained that Abaribe had also tried his best to make him believe in the ideologies of Biafra.
“My good friend Senator Abaribe was trying to convert my citizenship to Biafra while I used to give him lectures on how to live in prison when they come for him, using my years of experience in Kiri Kiri, Port Harcourt, and Aba Prisons in the 90s,” he wrote.
On Friday, June 22, 2018, Abaribe was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) at his barbershop located at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja for his alleged links with the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) being one of the sureties to the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
He was detained by the DSS in Abuja and released on bail on Tuesday, June 26, 2018.
