Aloy Ejimakor, the special counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has warned against ethnic politics, which he alleged is responsible for his client's continued detention.
Ejimakor disclosed that tribal politics is doomed to tear the nation apart.
In a tweet, Ejimakor wrote: “A politics that’s based on tribe and ethnicity is doomed to tear a country apart” – Barack Obama.
“The continued detention of #MNK is not based on law but on the same politics of tribe that will surely tear Nigeria apart, sooner than later. You can’t have it both ways. Never!”
Kanu had remained in detention since he was arrested in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria.
He was picked up over his agitation for Nigeria’s break up and the actualization of Biafra.
