The Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ahmed Abubakar, has been dragged to court by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu for imprisoning him (Kanu) in Kenya for eight days, before his extradition to Nigeria.
Mr. Alloy Ejimakor who is the special counsel to the IPOB leader made this disclosure yesterday via his Twitter handle, where he posted a picture containing the suit filed, where he described Kanu’s detention in Kenya as ‘false imprisonment.’
Ejimakor said the suit was prompted by new evidence gathered implicating the DG beyond the ‘infamous extraordinary rendition.’
Ejimakor said: ‘Yesterday (Wednesday) I filed a suit against Ahmed Abubakar, the DG of National Intelligence Agency (NIA) for his eight days ‘false imprisonment’ of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in discovereed evidence that implicated the DG/NIA beyond the infamous extraordinary rendition.’
Meanwhile, ahead of next year’s general elections, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has vowed to negotiate with all agitators in the Southeast amid Biafra agitation led by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
According to Tinubu, the negotiation with all agitators would go a long way in ensuring peace in the Southeast if elected president in 2023.
He made the pledge during Thursday’s APC presidential and governorship campaign rally in Ebonyi State.
Tinubu insisted that negotiation was the best way for people to get their demands and complaints rather than resorting to violence.
He also promised to invest in education if elected president.
‘Education is the greatest weapon against poverty. We are going to get our children’s education. We will reform the education sector.
‘We want peace l, we will talk to all agitators. You can’t get your wishes by conflict but by sitting round the table to complain,’ he said.
Lately, Kanu has been at the forefront of agitating for the actualisation of Biafra.
