President Muhammadu Buhari’s accusation that Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, jumped bail in 2017 was false, according to Aloy Ejimakor, special counsel to Kanu.
On the eve of the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), which was taking place in Kigali, Rwanda, on Thursday, Buhari made the statement.
The separatist leader, he continued, could not be offered a political solution or bail, which alarmed Kanu’s attorneys and followers.
Reacting on Saturday as done in previous moments, Ejimakor argued that his client did not jump bail but fled for safety.
Ejimakor had defended Kanu’s departure to the United Kingdom following invasion of his ancestral home in Umuahia, Abia state by security agents where deaths recorded and many injured.
On Saturday, he explained on Twitter by quoting a Court ruling in January this year had asked the Federal Government to apologise and compensate Kanu over attack on his residence by security agents in 2017, and as such it could be regarded that the separatist agitator jumped bail.
“Dear @BorisJohnson: On JUMPING BAIL, the Court ruled that “It is the view of this Court that the Army set out to terminate the life of Nnamdi Kanu. The invasion of his home is so notorious that this Court cannot turn a blind eye to it. He deserves an apology & compensation”. #MNK”
