Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has reacted to the Abia State High Court ruling on the pro-Biafra agitator.

Justice Ben Anya of the High Court sitting in Abia State had refused to entertain the Federal Government’s suit challenging the competence of his court to hear Kanu’s fundamental rights violation suit.

Kanu, through Ejimakor, had filed the fundamental rights suit against the Federal Government on the grounds of military invasion of his residence in 2017, his rearrest and torture in Kenya, his repatriation to Nigeria, amongst others.

However, the trial judge ordered the Federal Government to pay Kanu one billion as compensation

Justice Anya also ordered the government to publicly apologize to the IPOB leader for violating his fundamental human rights and pursue a political solution.

Reacting to the ruling, Ejimakor expressed confidence that the Federal Government would implement Justice Anya’s judgment.

In a statement he signed and forwarded to newsmen, the Special Counsel expressed hope that the judgment would impact Kanu’s trial at the Abuja Federal High Court.

Ejimakor said: “I am pleased with the judgment, especially as it diminished the vested notion that Nnamdi Kanu jumped bail in 2017. The directive by the Judge to the federal government to pursue the path of political solution with Kanu is also in good order. Going forward, I see the judgment having a significant impact on the Abuja case.

“I have no doubt that the federal government will implement the judgment. My confidence comes from the recent pronouncements from the President that he will respect whatever the judiciary decides in the matter of Nnamdi Kanu.”
