Nnamdi kanu’s lawyer, Barrister. Alloy Ejimakor has denied that IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu instructed his followers to attack President. Buhari, South East Governors and other igbo leaders in Japan.
According to Barrister Ejimakor, as reported in The Nation, what Nnamdi Kanu said was that the president, the South East governors and other Igbo leaders should be ready to answer tough questions from Ndigbo abroad.
“What Kanu has said, and it’s verifiable, is that those elected officials (especially those from the Southeast) who derelict and still derelict their duties to the people and prefer to junket and gallivant abroad should be ready to answer tough questions from Nigerians/Southeast diaspora.
“In plain terms, the so-called threat is not one of violent assault or batter, but of gusty demonstration or protest, of tough questions and heckling, of getting really close to the target.”
“Therefore Kanu never threatened or sanctioned any real threat of actual physical violence, assault or battery that is illegal or criminal. And he also said that you had no reason to be afraid if you had done nothing wrong.”
“I think Nigerians, particularly Igbo need to see the Ekweremadu incident through the prism of the German law which is unarguably permissive of it.
They include particularly the following: a) The immediate and unconditional deproscription of IPOB and delisting it as a terrorist organization. b)A truth and reconcillation commission on the python dance and lethal millitary operation of September 2017. C) A public apology for the extra judicial killings of IPOB members and the desecration of the palace of a traditional ruler in Afaraukwu, Abia state. d) A genuine dialogue with iPOB on its demand for referendum and the restoration of Biafra. e) Discontinuance of the ongoing persecution of IPOB members and forbearance of any future arrest or persecutions. Is this asking for too much?
