Lawyer to Tinubu: “Release Nnamdi Kanu, don’t be like Abacha, Buhari”

Posted by

In light of their views on self-determination, President Bola Tinubu has been warned not to follow in the footsteps of the late Military Head of State Sani Abacha and former President Muhammadu Buhari.

Aloy Ejimakor, Kanu’s special counsel, advised Tinubu to free the Biafra agitator rather than follow Abacha and Buhari’s example.

Ejimakor also cautioned that Kanu’s release might backfire in a tweet.

It boomerangs when the State (in this case, the President) refuses to enforce a judgment (domestic or foreign) against the State just because it is against the State, claims Ejimakor.

“Every time this occurs, the State’s legitimacy is questioned. Now, #FreeMNK. President Tinubu fled to exile in 1994 after being pursued by Abacha and said in April 1997, “I don’t believe in #OneNigeria.”

He went back to Nigeria in 1998 after Abacha’s passing. Earlier, Mr. President, you pushed for self-determination. #FreeMNK You are not an Abacha or a Buhari.
