Lawyer Ejimakor tells Nigerians and the rest of the world to tell the Buhari government to let Nnamdi Kanu go

Posted by

Aloy Ejimakor, who is Nnamdi Kanu’s Special Counsel and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPOB, has asked for the activist for Biafra to be set free.

Ejimakor asked the international community and influential Nigerians to convince the Nigerian government to follow the Appeal Court’s order and release Kanu.

Ejimakor talked about a call made by a former US Ambassador to Nigeria, John Campbell, and how many times the Nigerian government ignored calls and court orders to release Kanu.

In a statement, Ejimakor talked about how Campbell had said that, for the security of the country, the Nigerian government can’t afford to mess up Kanu’s case any more.

He wrote, “After Nnamdi Kanu’s unusual release last year, John Campbell, the former US Ambassador to Nigeria, warned in a tweet that Nigeria cannot afford to “mishandle” the situation with Nnamdi Kanu again for the safety and security of the country.

“Nigeria’s refusal to follow an order from a continental court in 2018 about Kanu was the first “mishandling.” The second one was the extraordinary one. The third step was to try Kanu. The fourth was to not obey the United Nations. And the chance of not following the Court of Appeal’s decision will be the fifth.

“Nigerians with money and power, as well as the international community, should try to get Nigeria to follow the court order that cleared Kanu of all criminal charges against him as soon as possible.”

Last week, an Appeal Court in Abuja cleared the leader of the IPOB of the terrorism charges that the Nigerian government had brought against him.

Even though the court ruled that Kanu should be freed, the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, said that Kanu would not be freed because he would be charged again.
