Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that the Biafran activist’s health has greatly improved after what he claimed as the pains he went through in Kenya.
He has also given strong hope on the quick release of Nnamdi Kanu, saying that there were no strong allegations to convict him.
Giving assurance on the improved health of the Biafran activist, he said that there was great improvement in the health of Nnamdi Kanu, despite what he described as the pains he went through 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.
“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.
“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.
The lawyer also spoke on threats to his life saying that he had nothing to fear or to be intimidated for.
“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.
“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.”
Giving his expectations on July 26 when Nnamdi Kanu is expected to be presented to the court, he 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 an application overdue for hearing, that is the invasion of his house where 28 persons were killed.
“We have all the pictorial evidence. We’ll tender them before the court so the court will look at them to ensure justice.”
