Barr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lead Counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, yesterday in a statement titled “Update on today’s (September 23, 2021) visit to our indefatigable client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu” disclosed that the IPOB leader is fine and in strong spirits at the headquarters of the Department of State Services, DSS.
Ejiofor said he had an extensive interaction/chat with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu during his routine visit to the National Headquarters of the Department of State Security Services, DSS, and his client is very much strong in spirit and firm in his convictions, noting that the public will see him soon.
On the visit, he said the IPOB leader was briefed on the peaceful conduct of his fans and he encouraged them to be united in peaceful solidarity, noting that he was happy over the support and overwhelming solidarity so far displayed by millions of his supporters.
He also briefed Nnamdi Kanu on the inability of the Federal Government to file response to his fundamental rights suit pending before the Umuahia High Court and remarked that the federal government’s reason for avoiding the court may not be unconnected to their inability to offer explanation on what he described as “monstrous and bloody” invasion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s residence on September 14, 2017, where over twenty eight civilians were murdered in cold blood by the invading Nigerian Soldiers, while properties worth billions of Naira were also destroyed.
Ejiofor stated that the world is paying attention to the gross human rights violations as it affects Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the continued onslaught on unarmed civilians who are being labelled as members of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
He described Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, as a political prisoner and vowed that they won’t relent in their efforts to ensure that justice is done to him, adding that he will be set free soon because he has not committed any offence known to law
According to him, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu welcomed every strategy being adopted by our team, as well as the coordinating efforts of all lawyers participating in this case, including those in the diaspora. Also the strides so far recorded on our part are seemingly impressive, but they may remain unnoticed to undiscerning minds.
He assured that they will continue to provide regular updates as events unfolds and implored them to continue to pray for the IPOB leader even as he remains unshaken in their support and prayers, like they have always displayed within the confines of the law.
