Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lead counsel for Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has stated that his client is anxiously awaiting his day in court to defend himself against the Federal Government’s charges.
Barrister Ejiofor made the announcement in a statement released on Thursday following his daily visit to Nnamdi Kanu at the Department of State Security Services’ National Headquarters.
Barrister Ejiofor, who accompanied Kanu’s younger brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, to the DSS, stated that the IPOB leader is grateful for IPOB members’ unwavering support and peaceful conduct thus far.
His statement reads, “21st October 2021 is sacrosanct and shall be the D-Day we have long-awaited. We crave for justice and nothing more, and justice must not only be done but must be seen to have been done by all and sundry,” the lawyer said.
“Onyendu (leader) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is in high spirits and tenaciously looking forward to the 21st Day of October 2021 Hearing Date.
“Since the Federal Government refused to honour the Fiat granted by the Honourable Chief Judge for Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case to be heard during the Court’s Annual vacation, or even shortly afterwards, ostensibly because they have no case against our Client, they definitely will have no hiding place come the 21st Day of October 2021, the earlier adjourned date,” Ejiofor added.
The lawyer assured that Kanu’s legal team is ready, and called on his client’s followers to be of good conduct as they await the court sitting to start in few days.
He said, “Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s erudite legal team have done all that is within our powers to assemble the best legal arsenal in Court come 21st October 2021 Hearing.
“Hence, we crave your cooperation and indulgence during this period. Please be assured that with God on our side, victory is certain.”
