Legal Team of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has insisted that, for any political dialogue for the activist to hold, he must be released from detention.

Emphassing this via a Twit, weekend, Nnamdi Kanu’s Special Counsel, Barr Aloy Ejimakor, insisted that this must be the first step to any meaningful dialogue, “because it’s  only MNK (Mazi Nnamdi Kanu) that has the vires to lead any dialogue.”

He cited the instance of Nelson Mandela, saying: “the release of Mandela from prison was the 1st step in the dialogue that led to ending apartheid in South Africa.”

Ejimakor noted that if the purported political solution publicized during the week by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, was with a bid to hoodwink the Legal Team, it would not work.

He stressed: “If your intension is to divide or distract Mazi #Kanu’s Legal Team, you will FAIL. I won’t fall for it & I’m sure my colleagues won’t fall for it.

“If you’ve personal scores with me or any member of the Legal Team, stop using Onyendu’s case as a pedestal. It won’t work. You hear?”

The Federal Government through the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), had, on Wednesday, said the Federal Government may consider all kinds of solutions, including political ones, in order to resolve the crisis surrounding separatist agitations in Nigeria.

He gave the indication on Wednesday, November 10, in an interview with journalists in Abuja on the pardon granted to Boko Haram insurgents while leaders of other separatist movements are facing prosecution.

When journalists sought to know if the Federal Government was not disposed to a political solution to the separatist agitations of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu; and Yoruba nationalist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Igboho, Malami said although such consideration was not yet on the table, the government would not mind taking a shot at it.

“As far as the security situation is concerned and as far as governance and this administration is concerned, you cannot rule out all possibilities. But then, there has to be an approach for government to consider,” he said.

The minister, however, said he cannot be pre-emptive at this stage by stating clearly that reconciliation was being considered without an approach being made.

He said, “We will look into it (approach) for the purpose of looking at its weight, the authenticity of it, the good faith associated with it and then bring about the considerable factors relating to the negotiations or otherwise.

“So, it is not a conclusion that one can outrightly make without juxtaposing associated facts relating to the reconciliation; there has to be an approach and then a counter consideration.”/SHARE THIS
