A lawyer has said that that it is only Nnamdi Kanu can initiate dialogue for a Biafra nation.

Aloy Ejimakor, counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has said that it is only his client that possesses “the vires to lead any dialogue.”

Ejimakor insisted that Kanu, a Biafra separatist leader, must be released by Nigerian authorities before any sort of dialogue can start.

“Nobody can initiate any dialogue until Onyendu #Kanu is released. This must be the 1st step, because it’s only MNK that has the vires to lead any dialogue. The release of Mandela from prison was the 1st step in the dialogue that led to ending apartheid in South Africa,” Ejimakor wrote on his known Twitter handle on Friday.

Kanu, who is being prosecuted on charges of treasonable felony and terrorism had been pushing for an independent Biafra state, claiming that the Igbo have been marginalised by successive Nigerian governments.

The charges, according to the prosecution, arose from the 54-year-old’s violent separatist agitations for the Republic of Biafra constituted by the Igbo-dominated South-eastern part of Nigeria.
