According to Aloy Ejimakor, Nnamdi Kanu’s Special Counsel, Nnamdi Kanu will not engage in conversation with the federal government until he is released.
Kanu is the IPOB’s (Indigenous People of Biafra) leader. On Friday, his lawyer stated in an interview. He stated that there would be no negotiation until the agitator was released.
Ejimakor remembered how former South African President Nelson Mandela was released from prison before apartheid ended in a series of tweets.
According to Ejimakor: “UPDATE: Today, I had a visitation with #Onyendu in the company of my colleague, Barr Ejiofor & his brother, Prince Emma Kanu. Our discussion centred primarily on the unfortunate episode in Court yesterday & the next course of action. Stay tuned for the details.
“DIALOGUE? Nobody can initiate any dialogue until Onyendu #Kanu is released. This must be the 1st step because it’s only MNK that has the vires to lead any dialogue. The release of Mandela from prison was the 1st step in the dialogue that led to ending apartheid in South Africa.”
Ejimakor’s remark comes as the Federal Government has hinted at the possibility of a diplomatic resolution to Kanu’s problem.
In a recent interview, Attorney General of the Federation Abubakar Malami stated that a political solution to the issue of Kanu and Yoruba Nation Activist, Sunday Igboho has not been ruled out and could yet occur.
As part of efforts to address the problem surrounding separatist agitations around the country, he stated the government is open to all kinds of discussions.
