Lawyer to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu; Barr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor has finally revealed how his client (Kanu) was whisked into Nigeria, ending speculations from different quarters including the media, regarding how Kanu was brought into the country.
Recall that many had opined that Nnamdi Kanu was arrested and brought back to Nigeria from the UK. Others claimed it was in UAE. South Africa and Kenya were equally mentioned in the midst as well.
Though British authority and Kenyan government had earlier denied having knowledge about the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu in their countries by security agencies of both countries, Ejiofor after meeting with Kanu, in DSS detention facility said “My Client – Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was actually abducted by the accursed Kenya’s Special Police Force.
“He was abducted on the 18th of June 2021 at their International Airport and consequently taken to an undisclosed residence under dehumanizing conditions.
“He was tortured and subjected to all forms of inhuman treatment which worsened his health condition. He was illegally detained for eight (8) good DAYS in Kenya before being transferred to their Nigerian counterpart.
“He was purportedly investigated on a bogus charge while in their custody, ostensibly, awaiting to be handed over after their findings proved him innocent of all the spurious allegations. They later beckoned on their Nigerian counterparts to take over.
“Kenyan Government was deeply involved in the abduction, detention and ill-treatment of my Client before the illegal handover to their Nigerian counterpart.”
Speaking further Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer who expressed worry over the state of his client’s health said “A scan of his heart showed that the heart has enlarged by 13% due to the dehumanising treatment meted to him.
“There will be need for immediate proper medical examination and attention for him.”
Assuring IPOB supporters that their leader is happy with what they are doing, Ejiofor who disclosed that they have a fortified legal team ahead of Kanu’s appearance in court on July 26 stated “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu conveyed his goodwill message to all IPOB family members worldwide, and craved for your unrelentless prayers.
“We are going back to the Court for the needful. Other details cannot be entertained here.
“His fortified legal team will address these infractions at the proper forum as we progress. Other details on our legal strategy, may not be made public.
“With Chukwuokike Abiama on our side, Victory is assured. For if God Almighty be for us, who can be against us? #freeMaziNnamdiKanu#”
Ejiofor had cried out to the public over the denial by the Department of State Services (DSS) to grant him access to his client.
But in a statement made available to Journalists on Friday evening, Kanu’s lawyer who hails from Oraifite in Anambra State said “thankfully our effort is yielding the desired result.
“We have just received a communication approving our visit to our Client- Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Shall keep the world posted on the outcome, immediately after the meeting, later in the Day. God is with us.”
