Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Monday, reacted to reports that the Federal High Court, Abuja, was considering shifting the trial venue of his client.
Ejimakor suggested that Kanu’s trial should be shifted to the Umuahia division of the Federal High Court.
In a chat with newsmen, Ejimakor explained that the IPOB leader last resided in Abia State, hence the trial should be shifted to Umuahia, the State capital.
He was reacting to comments by the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice John Tsoho, on the possibility of changing the venue of Kanu’s trial.
Justice Tosho had explained that the decision was to prevent the interruption of other pending cases in court during Kanu’s trial.
