Aloy Ejimakor, the Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), maintains that the Biafra agitator is not a terrorist.
Ejimakor asserts that Kanu is the leader of millions, and the multitude supporting him will persist until he attains freedom. He highlights the inconsistency of awarding monetary compensation and an unconditional release to someone deemed a terrorist by four courts.
In a post on X, Ejimakor states, “This truth is self-evident: A terrorist can never be awarded monetary compensation by 3 High Courts & unconditional release by the Court of Appeal & the United Nations. #FreeMNK. He’s not a terrorist. He’s a leader of millions & legions who will never relent until he’s freed.”
Nnamdi Kanu has been in detention by the Department of State Services (DSS) at the behest of the Nigerian government since his rearrest in Kenya in 2021. Despite court orders granting him freedom and monetary compensation, the Nigerian government has resisted releasing him.
On Monday, IPOB accused the DSS of denying Kanu access to visitors, citing his declining health condition.
