What Nnamdi Kanu Intends Doing To Enforce His Right — Counsel Ejimakor Reveals

Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Tuesday said that the next step following the no-show of the pro-Biafra group’s leader in court on Monday is to inevitably secure his release.

The Department of State Services (DSS) failed to produce Nnamdi Kanu, for his scheduled trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday.

The trial was stalled not just because of Kanu’s absence from court, but also because the judges of the court began their vacation on Monday, the trial judge, Binta Nyako, said.

Mrs. Nyako adjourned the case till October 21.

Earlier, the prosecuting lawyer, M. B Abubakar, informed the judge that Kanu’s absence might be due to “logistical” issues encountered by the Department of State Services (DSS), the agency holding him in custody.

Now, one of the major lawyers in Kanu’s defence team, Ejimakor, is optimistic they’ll triumph over the Nigerian government.

“To the multitudes asking me the way forward after the hearing yesterday, below is the answer:

“The very next step is to pursue the release of His Excellency from detention through the coordinated steps of the Legal Team in Nigeria & UK. We intend to succeed, sooner than later,” Ejimakor wrote on his known Twitter handle.”

The prominent separatist, who was granted bail in April 2017, fled the country after the invasion of his home in Afara-Ukwu, near Umuahia, Abia State, by the military in September of that year.

Kanu was rearrested and brought back to Nigeria in June, about four years after his trial on charges of treasonable felony was stalled due to his disappearance from the country.

The judge had on June 29 ordered Kanu to remain in SSS custody.
