Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Nīta Thera:He was a brahmin of Sāvatthi and joined the Order,believing that there he would find pleasure and comfort.He was lazy and indolent,but the Buddha,discerning his antecedents,admonished him,and Nita,developing insight,became an arahant.

In the time of Padumuttara Buddha he was a brahmin teacher named Sunanda.

One day,as he prepared a Vājapeyya sacrifice,the Buddha visited him and walked through the air above him.Sunanda threw flowers in the sky,and they formed a canopy over the whole town.

He became king thirty five times under the name of Abbhasa (v.l.Ambaramsa).Thag.vs.84; ThagA.i.180f.

He is probably identical with Puppachadanīya of the Apadāna.Ap.i.166.
