Every Group Gets What They Demand Except Ndigbo – Kanu’s Lawyer, Ejimakor

Aloy Ejimakor, legal counsel to the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, lamented that every ethnic group in Nigeria seems to achieve their demands from the federal government except for the Igbo community. He made these remarks in response to President Bola Tinubu’s announcement on Tuesday regarding the creation of a Ministry of Livestock Development, which had been previously requested by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN).

Ejimakor pointed out that MACBAN’s demand for the ministry was swiftly met, whereas similar requests from the Igbo community often encounter significant challenges. Expressing frustration, he questioned the difficulties faced by the Igbo people in Nigeria, highlighting disparities in how demands are addressed across different ethnic groups.

Ejimakor’s statement follows increasing calls from various quarters, including the South Governors Forum, former Anambra State governor Peter Obi, South East senators, members of the South East House of Representatives, and Ohanaeze Ndigbo, urging the federal government to release Nnamdi Kanu. Peter Obi, a former presidential candidate of the Labour Party, emphasized that there is no justification for Kanu’s continued detention, referencing a Supreme Court judgment on December 15, 2023, which, according to Ejimakor, should compel the federal government to release Kanu.
