Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, the incarcerated leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), on Monday, urged for the trial to be moved to the Umuahia division of the Federal High Court. 

The lawyer disclosed this reacting to the statement by the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice John Tsoho, on the possibility of changing the venue of Kanu’s trial. 

Ejimakor said, “If the Federal High Court overrules the objections to its jurisdiction and persists with the trial, then the venue should be shifted to the Umuahia division of the Federal High Court, because that is where Nnamdi Kanu last resided before he was pursued to Kenya and renditioned. 

“Abuja has no territorial connection with the offenses alleged. The alleged offences are entirely in Southeast. 

“So, any of the Southeast divisions will also serve as proper venue. If it requires making an expedient exception to the law, so be it”. (Daily Independent)
