The special counsel to the Indigenous People of Biafra, Barr Aloy Ejimakor, will today, at the Appeal Court in Abuja, seek the joining of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as a named party in the appeal against the proscription of IPOB.
Kanu is the leader of IPOB. IPOB is proscribed in Nigeria, and the proscription is being challenged in court for not giving concerned parties fair hearing.
Ejimakor stated this in a message via his Twitter handle. According to him, “Today, I will lead a team of lawyers to the Court of Appeal, Abuja, to make a case for #MNK to be joined as a named party in the appeal against the proscription of IPOB.
“I will also be in tag-team with SAN Machukwu-Ume who is leading in the mother case against the proscription.”
Recall that Ejimakor’s suit against the federal government at an Umuahia High Court over the alleged jumping of bail by Kanu in 2017 was ruled in favour of Kanu.
Kanu is being detained at the custody of the Department of State Services over alleged running a proscribed group, jumping bail, among others.
Meanwhile, one Innocent Nwaigwe, via his Twitter handled, has predicted victory for Ejimakor’s suit at the Appeal Court today.
According to Nwaigwe, “History will vindicate the just and the suffocating people of the East. We move.”
