Barr. Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has revealed that the Department of State Security, DSS has prevented his client from signing a Consular Assistance letter by the United Kingdom.
Barrister Aloy Ejimako disclosed this on Monday on his Twitter handle, lamenting that the DSS has bluntly refused his client from signing a consular assist form from the United Kingdom.
It would be recalled that the British High Commission had recently, offered to extended Consular Assistance to the Biafra Freedom fighter, following the latter’s rearrest and repatriation from Kenya to Nigeria.
Kanu, a dual citizen of British and Nigeria detained been on detention at the office of the Nigerian secret police, Department of State Services, DSS since his rearrest and repatriation from Kenya, on June 29, as his trial has been slated for July 26 for allegedly jumping bail in 2017
It would also be recalled that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had escaped narrowly a perceived death trap in the hands of the Nigerian Army who had invaded his father’s palace, HRM Eze Israel O. Kanu, at Isiama Afaraukwu, in Umuahia North LGA of Abia State.
It is also on record that the bloody invasion regrettably claimed the lives of not fewer than 28 unarmed IPOB members who would not allow their revered leader be tortured by the fierce looking soldiers who evidently had the directives of the President, Mohammadu Buhari.
Anambra Guber: Court Reinstates Soludo As APGA Candidate
A federal high court sitting in Awka, the Anambra capital, has affirmed Chukwuma Soludo, former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), as the Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for Anambra State November 2021 election.
It would be recalled that a viral report which emanated from the Independent on July 16, announced that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had chosen Michael Umeoji over Soludo as the standard-bearer for APGA
Soludo who belongs to the Victor Oye-led faction of APGA had secured 740 votes to defeat Ezenwankwo Christopher who polled 41 votes, while ThankGod Ibe had four votes, and Okolo Chibuzor got seven votes.
According to INEC the said decision is based on a court order.
Similarly, Festus Okoye, INEC’s commissioner for information and voter education, also told TheCable that Musa Ubale, judge of a high court in Jigawa state, had passed judgment in suit JDU/022/21, upholding the suspension of Victor Oye and affirming Jude Okeke as the party’s national chairman on June 30, 2021.
Okoye also cited another court order in suit number FCT/DW/CV/133/21 in which Bello Kawu, a judge at the federal capital territory (FCT) high court in Kubwa, on June 28, ordered INEC to monitor the primary election of the Jude Okeke faction and comply with the result.
Umeoji won the primaries in Okeke’s faction.
But delivering judgment on Monday, Chukwudi Okaa, presiding judge, said the other parties in the suit, comprising Jude Okeke, Edozie Njoku, and Chukwuma Umeoji, were “meddlesome interlopers”.
The judge, therefore, affirmed Oye as the national chairman of the party, and ordered INEC to recognise Soludo as the APGA governorship candidate for Anambra.
