Listen to article

Coming on the heels of the Federal Government of Nigeria amending some of the charges against Nnamdi Kanu, Barrister Aloy Ejimakor who is the special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has again insisted that no charges can actually stand against his client.

Ejimakor had been reacting to some of the Federal Government’s amended charges against Kanu.

On Friday, the Nigerian Government had amended the seven-count terrorism charge against the IPOB leader.

In a broadcast, the Federal Government had revealed that Nnamdi Kanu had issued a deadly threat that anyone who flouted IPOB’s sit-at-home order in the South-East should write his or her will and the Government had also claimed that in 2018, Kanu severally made broadcasts that incited his members to kill security operatives and families.

Reacting, Ejimakor faulted the Federal Government for recycling charges against Kanu.

In a series of tweets, Ejimakor said with the extraordinary rendition and the judgments form Abuja Appeal Court and Federal High Court in Umuahia, no charges can stick against Kanu.

He wrote: “The issue does not lie in recycling Charges. Any prosecutor can fun & frolic with Charges, but with the extraordinary rendition, plus the Abuja & Umuahia judgments, no Charges can ever stick against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Never!

“The Presidency should know that the Stay granted by the Court of Appeal did not halt compliance with the 2018 continental tribunal Decision, the UN Opinion & the Umuahia Federal High Court Judgment, which are all in favor of freeing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from custody & no new charges.”
