President Bola Tinubu has been admonished not to follow in the footsteps of late Military Head of State Sani Abacha and former President Muhammadu Buhari when it comes to self-determination.
Tinubu, according to Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, should liberate the supreme leader of the agitation and not toll the road of Abacha and Buhari.
Ejimakor revealed this in a series of tweets on Saturday, stressing that Tinubu’s administration’s legitimacy would be put into doubt if he refused to implement a judgment.
“Dear Mr President: It boomerangs when the State (in this case: the President) fails to enforce a Judgment (domestic or foreign) against the State, simply because it is against the State,” Ejimakor writes.
“Whenever this occurs, the State’s legitimacy is called into question.” #FreeMNK Right Now. Abacha pursued President Tinubu into exile in 1994, and in April 1997, he proclaimed, “I don’t believe in #OneNigeria.”
“After Abacha’s death in 1998, he returned to Nigeria.” Mr. President, you previously called for self-determination. You aren’t Abacha or Buhari. #FreeMNK.”
The imprisonment of Nnamdi Kanu by operatives of the Department of State Security, DSS, has sparked outrage in Nigeria’s south-eastern region, with many clamoring for his release.
We previously reported that the Igbo socio-cultural organisation Ohanaeze Ndigbo had petitioned the Federal Government to free Nnamdi Kanu, the incarcerated leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The organization argued that President Bola Tinubu’s nomination of new service chiefs would be useless without the freedom of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
