Aloy Ejimakor, the Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has described the continual detention of the IPOB leader as a tactic used by the Nigerian government to fuel insecurity in the Southeast region of the country.
Ejimakor alleged that former President Muhammadu Buhari was deliberate in refusing to release Kanu during his era and lamented that President Bola Tinubu has also continued the “vicious circle” by refusing to release Kanu.
He said that Kanu’s arrest, rendition, and detention were all part of a plan to exacerbate insecurity in the Southeast.
Ejimakor, in his tweets, wrote: “Buhari’s rendition/detention of Nnamdi Kanu and his violent suppression of dissent in Southeast were part of his broader agenda to fuel insecurity in Igboland.
“It’s baffling that a smarter @officialABAT has allowed this to continue by not releasing #MNK. It’s a vicious cycle.
The focus on the judiciary & resort to civil disobedience for the release of MAZI NNAMDI KANU is only because Britain has been reluctant to levy her diplomatic clout like it did in the case of the attempted rendition of Umaru Dikko in 1984. @RishiSunak must rise to the occasion.”
