‘It’s ironic to declare Biafra agitators wanted and release Boko Haram terrorists’ – Kanu’s lawyer


Aloy Ejimakor, the lead Counsel of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, on Friday said it was ironical that the Nigerian government declared some people wanted for agitating for Biafra while freeing hundreds of terrorists from detention.

The Nigerian Defence Headquarters had declared the Head of the Directorate of State of IPOB, Chika Edoziem and 96 others, including other Biafra secessionists, wanted for various crimes including terrorism and insurgency.

Also on the wanted list is the Finland-based self-acclaimed Biafra leader, Simon Ekpa.

 Meanwhile, a Federal High Court sitting in Borno has ordered the immediate release of at least 313 detained suspected Boko Haram terrorists arrested by the military.

The court ordered the release of the suspected terrorists for lack of evidence to jail them after investigations.

Reacting, Ejimakor wondered why the Nigerian government would release the terrorism suspects arrested by the military while some Biafra agitators were declared wanted.

Posting on X, the IPOB lawyer said it was ironical and another stark evidence of the horrendous injustice that was responsible for the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu.

According to Ejimakor: “It’s an oxymoron for the Army to declare someone wanted for seeking a separate State & turn around to free hundreds of terrorists, all in the same week.

“It’s another stark evidence of the horrendous injustice that is responsible for the continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
