Release Nnamdi Kanu if your apology is genuine, Counsel tells Buhari

The Special Counsel to the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, Aloy Ejimakor has criticised the apology made by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Ejimakor urged Buhari to release Kanu if his apology was genuine, adding that the continued detention of Kanu was leading to extrajudicial killings of agitators in the Southeast.

Ejimakor said Buhari should order the release of Kanu, who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since June 2021.

Kanu’s lawyer disclosed this via a Twitter post weekend, in reaction to Buhari’s apology to Nigerians, begging for forgiveness of those he had hurt.

“We are all humans, if I have hurt some people along the line of my service to the country, I ask that they pardon me,” the President said.

Reacting, Ejimakor said, “Dear President Muhammadu Buhari. Your policy on self-determination led to extrajudicial killings, detentions, torture and an infamous extraordinary detention.

“Prove that your apology is genuine by freeing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and all detained on account of self-determination.”
