Aloy Ejimakor, the Lead Counsel for Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has responded to the conditions presented before Kanu faces the treasonable felony charges brought against him by the Federal Government.

Ejimakor emphasized the validity of the demands, citing the constitutional provision that guarantees fair hearings before subjecting individuals to trial.


Addressing journalists after the proceedings at the Federal High Court in Abuja, Ejimakor highlighted the significance of ensuring Kanu’s rights are upheld.

He mentioned that while Kanu’s legal team has access to him in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), this access is closely monitored, which violates Section 36 of the Constitution.

Kanu had demanded the restoration of the bail previously granted to him by the court, asserting that his continued detention hinders his ability to adequately prepare his defense against the FG’s allegations.

He argued that his bail was revoked based on false representations by the FG and that he never violated his bail conditions before security agents raided his home.

Ejimakor emphasized the importance of upholding constitutional rights, particularly in cases where charges carry severe penalties.

He stated that the defense team’s stance aligns with Section 36 of the constitution, which mandates fair trials for all Nigerians.

Justice Binta Nyako has scheduled May 20 to rule on the matter, indicating a pivotal moment in Kanu’s legal battle.
