Nnamdi Kanu’s special counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, has called Nnamdi Kanu’s continuing detention a sin. Kanu is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Ejimakor claimed the Nigerian government will have a divine encounter if it freed Kanu.
He made the announcement while citing biblical verses that warn of the consequences of sin.
Righteousness raises up a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people, he said on X, quoting Proverbs 14:34.
Your sins and iniquities have caused a chasm to form between you and God, and they have obscured his face from you. Isaiah 59:2.
“It is a terrible wrong to keep #MNK in custody. Stop and look God in the eye.
Since his extraordinary rendition and re-arrest in Kenya in June 2021, Kanu has been held in detention.
The Department of State Services, DSS, arrested the IPOB leader upon his return to Nigeria, where his trial was already underway.
Although an appeals court had already dismissed and acquitted Kanu of terrorism charges, the Nigerian government has so far refused to release him.
