The legal counsel to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has said Nnamdi Kanu, was not arrested like Igboho but, abducted (kidnapped) in Kenya by the Nigerian security operatives.
Ejiofor said, since the arrest, the troubled leader of IPOB has not been given access to his family and friends. He said, Kanu has been placed in what seems to be a ‘solitary confinement’ because no one can exactly say where he is and his state of health.
Ifeanyi Ejiofor, made the allegations against the federal government during an interview session monitored by Sarahreports.com on Arise News TV earlier today.
Lawyer Ejiofor, also indicted the British government ‘for not doing much’ about Nnamdi Kanu’s case since he is also a British national. He said, “I can confirm to you that there is every likelihood of connivance in what happened to my client.” The allegations the British Consular refuted.
The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing during a chat on Wednesday with AriseNews TV, stated that, the IPOB leader has received Consular support from the British authorities being a British citizen.
“We have offered all necessary Consular assistance to Nnamdi Kanu as a British national. But declined commenting on Kanu’s court case, “No, I cannot say anything about the case, and emphasized, “but we have rendered Consular assistance to Nnamdi Kanu.”
Ifeanyi Ejiofor also said that, Nnamdi’s case is more of media trial than a court case and lamented how the Department of State Services (DSS) harassed his colleague during an attempt to visit Kanu in custody.
We will recall that Nnamdi Kanu’s case, which was supposed to be heard in court on Monday 20th, was adjourned till October 21 on the grounds that the IPOB leader was absent and for some other logistics reasons not stated to the media. The adjournment has since, generated a lot of criticisms and anxieties among the supporters of the embattled leader of IPOB.
