IPOB lawyer Aloy Ejimakor has filed a complaint with the African Union’s ACHPR concerning the extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The African Charter established the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights. The Commission was inaugurated on 2 November 1987 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Commission is officially charged with three major functions, which is -
1) Protection of human and peoples' rights.
2) Protection of human and
3) peoples' rights and interpretation of the African Charter.
Nigeria government in collaboration with the government government have on rendered Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) to Nigeria. This is against international law.
Extraordinary rendition, also called irregular rendition or forced rendition, is the government-sponsored abduction and extrajudicial transfer of a person from one country to another with the purpose of circumventing the former country's laws on interrogation,
detention, extradition and/or torture. This is a crime Nigeria has committed against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the entire world.
Ejimakor, the lawyer representing IPOB took to his twitter to announce the complaint.
The tweet goes thus
"In addition to the various legal, diplomatic & political battles for His Excellency, I’ve today filed a Complaint with the African Union’s ACHPR, asking it to hold Nigeria to its treaty obligations against Extraordinary Rendition. The trial within trial has started."
