Kanu’s Lawyer, Ejimakor Accuses DSS of Seizing Legal Document

Aloy Ejimakor, the Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of confiscating a crucial legal document from him. According to Ejimakor, he brought a significant legal document for Kanu’s review to the DSS headquarters on Monday, but the agency’s officials seized it and did not return it during his visit.

Speaking on X platform, Ejimakor revealed this incident while announcing his visit to Kanu, who has been in DSS custody since June 29, 2021. The lawyer expressed his dismay over the confiscation, emphasizing that Kanu should not face trial under such violations, asserting that “it is not a court-martial.”

Ejimakor’s assertion highlights the importance of legal protocols and due process, suggesting that any legal proceedings against Kanu should adhere to established norms and standards. The confiscation of the legal document raises concerns about transparency and fairness in Kanu’s case, prompting calls for accountability and respect for legal rights.

“I just exited from today’s visitation with Onyendu #MNK. I took a critical legal document to him to preview it, but, as usual, the DSS seized the document and never brought it back until I left,” Ejimakor wrote.

“MNK will NEVER BE TRIED under violations like this. It’s not a court-martial. #FairHearing,” he added.

Recall that last Tuesday, the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja dismissed the fresh application that Kanu filed to be released on bail, pending the determination of the treasonable felony charge the Federal Government preferred against him.

Instead of granting the bail application, Justice Binta Nyako ordered an accelerated hearing of FG’s seven-count charge against him.

Justice Nyako adjourned the trial to April 17.
