‘Nnamdi Kanu’s Persecution Is Wrong’ – Aloy Ejimakor To FG

Listen to article

Aloy Ejimakor who is the Special counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has on Monday made an open appeal to the Federal Government of Nigeria where he decried the rate of persecution and personal vendetta being inflicted upon his client.

Barrister Aloy Ejimakor had also called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to put a halt on the alleged persecution of Kanu.

To mark one year of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s controversial rendition from Kenya, the Lawyer had also petitioned the Federal Government to free Kanu.

In a tweet, the Special Counsel said Kanu’s extraordinary rendition was legally and politically wrong.

In June 2021, Kanu was picked up in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria. Upon his repatriation to Nigeria, the IPOB leader has been held by the Department of State Services, DSS, while his trial continues.

However, Ejimakor tweeted: “It came to pass that one year ago, (June 19,2021) an extraordinary rendition was committed. It was a day that will live in infamy because it was an extraordinary abomination.

“It was a legal wrong. It was a political wrong. And it must be undone. Stop the persecution and free Nnamdi Kanu.”

Nnamdi Kan had also recently kickstarted a motion to slam a fresh suit against the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice John Terhamba Tsoho, over the adoption of a secret trial policy in the criminal charges brought against him by the Federal Government.

The Chief Judge was sued alongside the Chief Registrar of the court at the Federal High Court, Abuja in which the detained Kanu is seeking an order of the court to void the secret trial policy on the ground that it is invalid, unlawful, and unconstitutional.
The suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/556/2022 was instituted on his behalf by Ifeanyi Ejiofor, one of the counsels in his defense team.

Kanu predicated his objection to a secret trial on the ground that the policy violated his fundamental rights under section 36 of the 1999 Constitution and Section 34 of the Terrorism Prevention Act 2011.
