The IPOB Lead Counsel, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has visited the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Monday 2nd August 2021, said he is firm and stable.
BiafraToday obtained this report through his social media accounts. According to him, Kanu is firm and stable, less the burden of solitary confinement and concomitant mental torture arising therefrom.
The full report reads “After weeks of speculations and uncertainties, we have finally seen our Client-Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We can authoritatively confirm this position to the World.”
“He is firm and stable, less the burden of solitary confinement and concomitant mental torture arising therefrom. Though the Detaining Authority is giving him medical attention, he still requires advanced medical care, which formed a substantial part of the relief in our application before the Court.”
“He specifically requested that we should extend his heartfelt compliment to Millions of his supporters worldwide and all foreign Governments and institutions who are relentlessly following up. Media houses are indeed not left out of this classification.”
“We are winning but your prayers are doing wonders, don’t relent, as you continue to remain law-abiding.”
“We shall continue to keep you all in constant communication on every development around him particularly now that the visit will be more regular than before.”
Recall that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is fighting for the freedom of South Eastern Nigeria and has since been clamouring for Biafra referendum, was abducted in Kenyan Airport by the Kenya forces on June 19 2021 – according to his lawyer, taken to a residential apartment and was seriously beaten, tortured, and detained for 8 days before he was extraordinarily renditioned to the Nigerian government.
In Nigeria, he was taken to court immediately without the knowledge of his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, on June 29 2021 and the court concluded that his trial should commence on July 26 2021.
The Nigerian government had in 2015 arrested Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and charged him with treasonable felony, among others. However, he was held captive for two years without trial before eventually granting him bail in April 2017, while announcing a new date for his trial.
BiafraToday learned that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was preparing for his upcoming trial when the Nigerian security forces invaded his home on September 14 2017, in Afaraukwu Abia state. His men numbering up to 27 was killed in the process.
Kanu miraculously survived the attack and decided to flee for his life ahead of the trial date. BiafraToday also learned that his lawyer, Barr Ejiofor, enlightened the court regarding this incident but didn’t get a response.
On July 26 2021, the department of state security services (DSS) failed to produce Mazi Nnamdi in court due to logistics reasons they said. The judge in charge of the case, Justice Binta Nyako, decided to adjourn the case till October 21, 2021, while allowing his lawyer to visit him twice a week.
