Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer sends message to UK Prime Minister [DOCS]

Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), informed British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday that his client’s 2017 military invasion of his home was “so notorious that he deserves an apology.”

TheNGblog recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari earlier this week ruled out the possibility of a political solution or bail for the detained separatist leader in his ongoing legal battle with the Federal Government.

In a meeting with Johnson, Buhari denied claims that Kanu was denied private access to his lawyers, saying that the detained British-Nigerian was being given every opportunity under the law “to justify all the unfavourable things he had been saying against Nigeria in Britain.”

In response to those statements, Ejimakor reiterated that his client jumped bail because Nigerian security forces wanted to assassinate him, citing a January judgement of the Abia High Court sitting in Umuahia ordering the country’s Army to pay Kanu N1 billion in compensation for invading his house in September 2017.

“Dear @BorisJohnson: On JUMPING BAIL, the Court ruled that “It is the view of this Court that the Army set out to terminate the life of Nnamdi Kanu. The invasion of his home is so notorious that this Court cannot turn a blind eye to it. He deserves an apology & compensation,” Ejimakor wrote on his known Twitter handle.
