lawyer Aloy Ejimakorthe special adviser to the separatist leader and the outlawed indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB), on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, said that Malami’s consistent claim that the IPOB leader absconded on bail is “slanderous and defamatory” because ‘the Umuahia court has already ruled’ that Kanu did not jump bail.

What he said: In litigation filed in an Abia State High Court in Umuahia on Friday, January 13, 2023, seen by Pulse, he claimed Malami or other FG representatives said Kanu jumped bail “Is highly detrimental and detrimental” to the pending court cases of the detained separatist leader.

Taking its voice from Twitter, the council said: “Last week, I filed a lawsuit against AGF Malami to prevent him from making any more defamatory posts that Onyendu #MNK bail jumped. Such publication is highly prejudicial and damaging to other MNK cases pending in various courts. It has to stop!

What you should know: On October 13, 2022, an Abuja Court of Appeal acquitted and cleared Kanu of terrorism charges, but the federal government appealed the decision and the court granted the government’s request to stop the execution of the sentence releasing the IPOB leader.
