Refusal to release Kanu plot against Ndigbo – Lawyer

Aloy Ejimakor, a special counsel for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the Federal Government of having “a sinister plot against Ndigbo” for not releasing Kanu from detention.

Ejimakor, who said this in a tweet posted to his Twitter page on Monday, alleged that there was a hidden agenda to put “Ndigbo between a rock and a hard place” as Nigeria matches to the poll in 2023.

He tweeted, “It’s becoming self-evident that the refusal to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is part of a sinister plot against Ndigbo. The hidden agenda is to put Ndigbo between a rock & a hard place as Nigeria farcically careens into the 2023 elections. The good news is that it will boomerang. Yes!”

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja had, on Thursday, October 13, 2022, freed discharged Kanu, declaring as illegal and unlawful, his abduction from Kenya to Nigeria and quashed the entire terrorism charges brought against him by the Federal Government.

The appellate court held that the Federal Government breached all local and international laws in the forceful rendition of Kanu to Nigeria thereby making the terrorism charges against him incompetent and unlawful.

In a judgment by Justice Oludotun Adebola, the court voided and set aside the charges by the Federal Government against Kanu and proceeded to discharge him from the alleged offences.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government, through the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, in a swift reaction to the discharge of Kanu had said Kanu was only discharged but not acquitted.
