Aloy Ejimakor, the special counsel for the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu, has called for his release after one year in the custody of the Department of State Services.
Ejimakor, in a tweet, said, “It came to pass that one year ago, (June 19, 2021) an extraordinary rendition was committed. It was a day that will live in infamy because it was an extraordinary abomination.
“It was a legal wrong. It was a political wrong. And it must be undone. Stop the persecution and free Nnamdi Kanu.”
In the same rein, Kanu’s family have expressed sadness that he spent the 2022 Father’s Day in DSS custody in Abuja
Junior brother to the detained IPOB leader, Emma Kanu, said, “I am feeling sad today. This is a year today since he was kidnapped and brought back to Nigeria.
“The question is, ‘Has anything changed?’ The answer is, ‘No’. This is because the impression before now is that Nnamdi Kanu is part of the problem in Nigeria, whereas he is part of the solution and not part of the problem.
“It is better that the Federal Government understands that Nnamdi Kanu is a force to work with and not a force to jettison. The earlier they understand this, the better for you and I.”
