Aloy Ejimakor Reaveals Who Is Behind Nnamdi Kanu's Detention

FG Should Move Nnamdi Kanu’s trial To Southeast – Ejimakor Says, Reveals Why

by Victor Ndubuisi

On Monday, Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, reacted to rumors that the Federal High Court in Abuja was contemplating moving his client’s trial location.

Kanu’s trial, according to Ejimakor, should be moved to the Federal High Court’s Umuahia division.

Ejimakor told Newsmen that because the IPOB commander last lived in Abia State, the trial should be moved to Umuahia, the state capital.

He was responding to remarks made by Justice John Tsoho, the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, on the prospect of moving Kanu’s trial to a different location.


The decision was made to avoid the interruption of other current matters in court during Kanu’s trial, according to Justice Tosho.

Before Justice Binta Nyako of the Abuja Federal High Court, the IPOB leader is charged with terrorism.

During Kanu’s court appearances, the courthouse is generally surrounded by the agitator’s supporters, who are accompanied by a large security presence.

During Kanu’s sessions, security personnel frequently prohibit other lawyers from entering the courtroom.

This had irritated Justice Tsoho, prompting him to contemplate moving Kanu’s trial to a another location.

In response, Ejimakor urged that the court consider relocating Kanu’s trial to any South-East state.


The Special Counsel stressed that Abuja has no territorial connection with the crimes levelled against the IPOB leader.

According to Ejimakor: “If the Federal High Court overrules the objections to its jurisdiction and persists with the trial, then the venue should be shifted to the Umuahia division of the Federal High Court, because that is where Nnamdi Kanu last resided before he was pursued to Kenya and renditioned.

“Abuja has no territorial connection with the offenses alleged. The alleged offences are entirely in Southeast.

“So, any of the Southeast divisions will also serve as proper venue. If it requires making an expedient exception to the law, so be it”.
