On Friday, Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu, named the people responsible for Kanu’s extended imprisonment.
Ejimakor stated that the President’s office, not the Supreme Court, had custody of the troublemaker.
He made the revelation while arguing that, after releasing Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Igboho, the Federal Government has no right to keep detaining Kanu.
Ejimakor said in an X post that Igboho’s release was arranged by Yoruba elders.
If anything, the release of SUNDAY IGBOHO—which Ejimakor claims had the backing of Yoruba leaders and Tinubu (@officialABAT)—made MAZI NNAMDI KANU’s continued incarceration even less plausible. The Presidency, not the Supreme Court, is currently holding #MNK.
Igboho was recently released from a jail in Beniese, where he had been imprisoned for two years after he had fled Nigeria in response to a proclamation by the Department of State Service, DSS.
The extraordinary rendition of Kanu occurred about the same time as the arrest of Igboho.
Since returning to Nigeria, Kanu has been imprisoned by the DSS as his trial progresses.
