President Bola Tinubu has the constitutional authority to halt any criminal trial in the nation, according to Aloy Ejimakor, the Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, the head of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Then, Ejimakor pleaded on Tinubu to employ the authority granted to him by the constitution to free the IPOB leader who is being held by the Department of State Services (DSS).
According to Kanu’s counsel, the president is able to undo the injustice committed by his predecessor, former President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a tweet on Sunday, the attorney stated that Tinubu did not need to wait for the Supreme Court to free the IPOB leader.
Ejimakor wrote, “Under the Constitution, the AGF (in practice: the President) has the power to stop any criminal trial.
“So, President Tinubu doesn’t have to wait for the Supreme Court to undo the grave injustice (rendition) done by his predecessor by releasing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu @officialABAT.”
Kanu is standing trial against the federal government since he was arrested and repatriated in 2021 from Kenya.
