DSS seizes Nnamdi Kanu’s legal document, IPOB lawyer alleges

Nnamdi Kanu faults ruling, heads to appellate court

Ejimakor and Kanu

Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Aloy Ejimakor, has alleged that the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) seized a particular legal document from him.

Ejimakor said he took a “critical” legal document to Kanu for review at the DSS headquarters on Monday, but the secret police officials collected it without returning it till he left.

Kanu’s lawyer made this known in a post he made on X announcing his visit to the IPOB leader who has been in the custody of the DSS since 29 June 2021.

 The IPOB lawyer, then, vowed that Kanu would not tried under violations of that kind, adding that, “it is not a court-martial.”

“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.

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.
