IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu legal team meet ahead of court appearance

Senate minority leader Enyinaya Abaribe said he didn’t feel betrayed by Nnamdi Kanu who fled the country before he was re-arrested.

The legal team of Nnamdi Kanu, led by his Lead Counsel, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor and his Special Counsel, Barrister Alloy Ejimakor, on Monday met with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to strategize on Thursday’s court appearance in Abuja.

According to a statement signed by Ejiofor on behalf of the counsel to IPOB, the meeting which was held at the Department of State Service (DSS) headquarters, was very fruitful.

Ejiofor said the meeting discussed a wide range of matters, especially the hearing of the case and the court appearance on Thursday, adding that more of such meetings would be held between Monday and Thursday when the case would be heard by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

He said, “The coast is now clear for legal fireworks this Thursday, particularly now that we have been served with a purported ‘Amended Charge’ in the case.

“Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is in good spirit, awaiting his auspicious outing on Thursday, the 21st Day of October 2021.

“He commended those who are in the spirit with him while declaring that Chukwuokike Abiama has ordained this special day for a victorious outing.

“He requested that the fasting, supplications and prayers should continue, as he noted that they are strongly impacting positively.

“In the interim, it is necessary to pass the following urgent and important messages, which are:

“Onyendu made it categorically clear that none of his lawyers should be harassed, threatened or accused by anybody claiming to be his supporter or follower, regardless of the person’s tie with him.

“He was very particular about those who find it convenient to insult his Attorneys vide their live social media platforms.

“Our client, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, emphasised that he trusts his lawyers and continues to have high confidence in them.

“That anybody engaged in such harassment, threats and unfounded accusations directed against his lawyers, is definitely working against him, and that he shall never forgive such person(s) and shall eternally see such person(s) as his enemy.

“That the best thing anybody claiming to be his supporter or follower can do for him at this point in time is to wholeheartedly support all his lawyers in their current efforts.

“That any such threats, harassment and false accusations against any of his lawyers should seize forthwith.

“He further implored Umu Chineke (children of God) to be steadfast, and keep their eyes steadily on the ball and pray without ceasing, while believing very strongly that this present situation will pass too and it shall end in praises. Iseeee (Amen)!!!

“This THURSDAY is D-Day, and your solidarity/support must be demonstrated within the confines of the law, as you have always shown.

“Onyendu specifically asked us to extend his undiluted love and confidence for Umu Chineke.

“We are eminently prepared for Thursday’s outing, and you won’t be disappointed, Umu Chineke. Thank you all and remain richly blessed.”
