Special Counsel to the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, Alloy Ejimakor, has stated that the Lagos State EndSARS panel report has exonerated his client of any accusations .
According to the Lagos State Panel of Investigation’s recently released report on the Lekki Toll Gate incident, police and Nigerian Army officers purposefully killed and injured armless youths protesting.
According to the article, Major General Taiwo, who testified before the panel in the course of the probe, intimated that the soldiers acted on orders from Buratai, who received orders from President Muhammadu Buhari, the Commander-in-Chief.
Ejimakor recalled how Malami had accused Kanu of ordering IPOB members to burn down the palace of the Oba of Lagos.
Ejimakor said: “The report exonerated my client, Nnamdi Kanu and the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
“If you recall, on October 22, a day after the last two hearings, after which my client pleaded not guilty to the seven amended charges, the Attorney General came out with a press release, where he reeled out very wild allegations that were not on the amended charges.
“One of the principal allegations he made against Nnamdi Kanu was that he was a ring leader in the EndSARS protest. He claimed that Kanu sent his members, IPOB, to burn the palace of the Oba of Lagos.
“Malami made a lot of allegations against Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB regarding the EndSARS, and was silent on the innocent citizens that were massacred.
“Now, this report that came out has confirmed that innocent citizens as high as 11 were massacred. I have a copy of the report and I went through it. There is no single indictment of Nnamdi Kanu or IPOB members.”
