Nnamdi Kanu: We’ll resist any trial against tenets of constitution-Ejimakor, as next hearing comes up June 19

As the next hearing of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case comes up on June 19 and 20, 2024, Kanu’s lead Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor has expressed concern that the State Security Services (DSS) might frustrate fair trial.

In a release posted on his platform, Mr Ejimakor alleged that the DSS had already exhibited what he described as its vested disrespect for judicial pronouncements when it, in disobedience to court order, according to him, refused Kanu’s legal team to meet with him as a team or together to prepare him for the upcoming hearing, commencing on June 19.

He said that the DSS insisted that members of the legal team including himself must meet with Kanu separately or leave the premises. He disclosed that was the reason, Mazi Kanu’s team of lawyers left the DSS facility without meeting with him, a situation he noted would complicate the June 19 hearing.

“This latest disobedience of a subsisting court order by the DSS is symbolic of what has become an executive self-indictment of the trial that the government itself and the Court insist must take place.

“If they do not obey a simple court order that is directly geared to giving them the trial they so much desire, why then is the AGF still bent on prosecuting the case? Are we to believe that it is only a sham trial that they secretly desire? To be sure, it is impossible to prosecute a case without having the ingredients of a fair hearing in place.

“These antics are further evidence that the case against Mazi Kanu has no merit, hence the reason every avenue for a fair hearing is being blocked. If the AGF through the DSS are apprehensive of the fell consequences of a fair trial, then they need to do the needful by discontinuing this case without further ado. Otherwise, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his legal team will resist any trial that is against the tenets of the Constitution, “he concluded.
