Nnamdi Kanu did not escape from DSS custody – Lawyer, Ejimakor debunks reports


Aloy Ejimakor, the lead Counsel of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Friday denied reports that the agitator escaped from his holding facility at the Department of State Services, DSS, in Abuja.

Ejimakor was reacting to claims that Kanu had escaped from custody.

Speaking with DAILY POST, Ejimakor said: “It’s not true. I will be visiting him today by 2:00 pm. Kanu is a responsible and courageous freedom fighter and he is determined to stay put to fight the injustice within the system, not outside of it. He is too big to contemplate the option of escaping.”

Efforts by DAILY POST to reach DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, were not successful as he did not pick calls, and text messages sent to his phone were not replied.

It was reported that the IPOB leader escaped from the DSS custody with his case file on Thursday.

The report captioned, ‘Breaking news: Nnamdi Kanu escapes from DSS custody with case file’, said, “According to reliable sources, Kanu’s escape was executed with meticulous planning and precision, catching the authorities off guard.

“Details surrounding the escape remain murky, with speculation ranging from insider assistance to external support.”
