Ado Ekiti — Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, wednesday defended why he attended the trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, in Abuja on Tuesday, saying he did so as a protest against injustice being perpetrated against Nigerians.
To show his seriousness and commitment to the battle against injustice, Fayose promised to also attend the trials of former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd), and the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.
A statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, quoted the governor as saying he would never support a situation whereby court orders, rulings and judgments are disregarded by the government.
“The federal government are the ones making Kanu a hero. Anywhere in the world, agitation is normal. In the United Kingdom, there is agitation in Northern Ireland, even the UK itself is agitating in Europe. Let people agitate for whatever reason as long as it is constitutional. I am not in support of the break up of Nigeria. But when court grants bail to people, release them and allow them to attend their trials from home.
