Ifeanyi Ejiofor: God Appointed Me To Defend Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB… He Will Be Released Soon

Counsel to the leader of the proscribed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has said his client would be released soon.

Speaking to newsmen, Ejiofor, who had come under attack by security agents in past, stated that he was appointed by God to defend Kanu and IPOB members.

The pro-Biafra agitators’ lawyer urged Biafrans across the world to be patient and prayerful.

“We’re in high spirit that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will soon come out of detention sooner than expected, and better too. It’s one thing for allegations to be made, it’s another thing to establish it. But I don’t think there’s anything strong enough to convict him,” he said.

On Nnamdi Kanu’s health, Ejiofor disclosed that there was great improvement despite the inhuman treatment he was subjected to while in Kenya.

“There’s no cause for worry. His health is improving. Only that he has not been allowed access to his family, particularly his wife and children, which I see as another level of mental torture.

“But we’re doing all we can to ensure he’s transferred to appropriate custodian pending when his trial commences. We’re also making efforts to get medical experts to ensure his health gets stable,” he added.

He also warned those threatening to harm him to desist from it, stressing that he was on a divine assignment.

“There’s no amount of intimidation or threats that can stop me from defending Nnamdi Kanu. I advise those after me to have a rethink because no body can kill me,” Ejiofor said.

“I’m a man of destiny and on a divine assignment. God has appointed me to be Kanu and IPOB’s lawyer. I’ll stand by him till victory is guaranteed. All we need from Biafrans is prayers and patience. Pray for him, and for us his lawyers too.”

On the expectations ahead of the July 26 court hearing, the IPOB lawyer said: “Nothing extraordinary will happen that day. That I can assure you. We’ll be there as usual to entertain applications. If there’s any amendment, we’ll take it up from there.

“What we have is still the 3-count charge. We also have application overdue for hearing, that is the invasion of his house where 28 persons were killed.

“We have all the pictorial evidences. We’ll tender them before the court so the court will look at them to ensure justice.”
