Barrister Aloy Ejimakor, special counsel to the embattled leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has denied the report that his client has expressed willingness to settle out of court with the federal government.

He described the news report as false.

Recall that it was widely reported on Wednesday that Kanu through Ejimakor at the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja sought negotiation with the Nigerian government on the terrorism charges levelled against him.

But while reacting to the news report, Ejimakor described it as fake.

According to him, the court invoked the provisions of Section 17 of the Federal High Court Act and directed the Nigerian government and Kanu to pursue reconciliation.

He said, “The news titled ‘Kanu seeks negotiation with FG’ is false & a deepfake news meant to twist an idea that was muted as an alternative to trial by the Court & the parties.

“The truth is that the Court directed the parties to consider the option of reconciliation which the law allows.”
