Deployment of soldiers in Kanu’s house illegal – Falana

A human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), on Wednesday, described as illegal, the alleged deployment of soldiers in the family house of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, in Umuahia, Abia State.

Also, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mike Ozekhome, has described the action as brute force and a crush-them mentality.

Falana, in a statement on Wednesday, said as there was no legal basis for the involvement of soldiers in the place, President Muhammadu Buhari should direct the armed troops “to withdraw and return to their barracks forthwith.”

He said the Commissioner of Police in Abia State should be allowed to take over Kanu’s case in line with the provisions of the constitution and the Police Act.
