Posted By: Odunayo Ogunmola, Ado-Ekiti

Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has said he attended the trial of the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, in Abuja on Tuesday “because of his belief in ensuring justice for all, irrespective of where one hails from”.

The governor promised to also attend the trials of former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (retd) and the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.

Fayose spoke yesterday while featuring on Africa Independent Television (AIT) programme, People, Politics and Power, monitored in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.

The governor said he would not support a situation whereby court orders, ruling and judgments were disregarded by the government.

He said: “The Federal Government is making Kanu a hero. Anywhere in the world, agitation is normal. In the United Kingdom (UK), 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 a court grants bail to people, release them and allow them to attend their trials from home…”
