Nnamdi Kanu has not escaped from DSS custody – Lawyer clears air

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s lead counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, has debunked reports that the agitator escaped from the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, (DSS).

Ejimakor was reacting to claims that the embattled IPOB leader had escaped from the DSS holding facility in Abuja with his case file.

It was reported by some publication on Thursday that the Biafra secessionist carefully planned his escape and took the authorities by surprise.

According to the report; “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.”

Reacting to an inquiry from Daily Post on Friday, June 14 Ejimakor said said it is untrue and noted that Kanu will stay put to fight the injustice in the system as he is a courageous freedom fighter.

He 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.”
