Nnamdi Kanu's Lawyer Reacts To FG's Fresh Court Application

Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor has said that his client had “successfully challenged the bail conditions the federal government referred to in its new application fled to the Court on Friday.

Ejiofor stated this in a chat with Premium Times.

He said: “Though we intend to file a formal response to their most misconceived motion, it is my position that it does not lie in the power of the AG to ask for the revocation of the bail granted to my client. The prosecution can’t be seen at the same time as the persecutors.

“We have successfully challenged the bail terms we considered offensive to our clients constitutionally guaranteed rights. So their recent application is belated.

“Section 169 of the ACJA being relied upon by the AG can’t avail the Attorney General absolute power to ask for the revocation of bail. Parties must be heard on the merit by the court."

Mr. Ejiofor also said the alleged security outfit created by Mr. Kanu is a “mere group” formed in the exercise of the citizen’s constitutional right.

He added that the group cannot “by any stretch of the imagination” constitute themselves into a security threat.

“Let the federal government open their case if they have any genuine charge against my client. They are beating about the bush because they have no case against my client,” Mr. Ejiofor said.
