Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Tuesday, said President Muhammadu Buhari owes his client three outstanding debts.
Ejimakor said Buhari owes Kanu the 2018 international decision; the United Nations, UN, Opinion; and the Federal High Court judgment.
He stated this while referring to a quote by a former associate of the Justice of the Supreme Court in the United States, US, Louis Brandeis.
In a tweet, Ejimakor recounts Brandeis’s remark that when the government becomes the lawbreaker, everybody becomes a law to themselves.
He tweeted: “Buhari has 3 outstanding debts to #MNK & to freedom – the 2018 international Decision that remains confidential, the UN Opinion & the Federal High Court Judgment.
“If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it invites every man to become a law unto himself” – Louis Brandeis.”
Kanu has been locked up since June 2021, when he was arrested in Kenya and subjected to extraordinary rendition.
Since his arrest, the courts in Nigeria have granted Kanu bail, but the government has refused to release him.
The IPOB leader is currently locked up by the Department of State Services, DSS.
