Aloy Ejimakor, a special counsel for the detained leader of IPOB has advised the Federal Government to drop all trials on IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu and embrace dialogue.
Ejimakor, in a tweet on Tuesday, said dialogue is an amicable way to settle the issue, not trial.
The lawyer quoted a section of the Federal High Court Act.
He wrote, “Sec. 17 of Federal High Court Act (Reconciliation in civil & CRIMINAL cases) says: “In any proceedings in the Court, the Court may promote RECONCILIATION among the parties thereto & encourage & facilitate the AMICABLE settlement thereof”. Dialogue is amicable. Trial is not. #MNK.”
The Nigerian Government instituted a fifteen-count charge against the IPOB leader before Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court.
Eight out of the fifteen counts bordering on terrorism and related offences filed against Kanu were struck out by the court.
The judge struck out counts six, seven, nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14.
