Nnamdi Kanu Will Be Released Soon – Lawyer
Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer has stated that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra will be released shortly.
Ifeanyi Ejiofor said this after stating that there were no strong allegations against Nnamdi Kanu that may lead to his conviction.
Biafrans should be patient and pray, he said.
“We have high hopes that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu would be released from detention sooner than predicted and in better condition. It’s one thing to make charges; it’s quite another to prove them. But I don’t believe there’s enough evidence to convict him,” he stated.
Despite the inhumane treatment Kanu received in Kenya, Ejiofor stated that Kanu’s health had much improved.
“There’s no need to be concerned. His health is getting better. Only that he has been denied access to his family, especially his wife and children, which I consider to be a form of mental torture.
“However, we are doing everything we can to ensure that he is transferred to an appropriate caretaker before his trial begins. We’re also trying to find medical professionals to help him get his health back on track,” he added.
While repeating purported threats to his life, Ejiofor warned those who came after him to stop immediately, describing it as a failed attempt.
“No amount of threats or intimidation would deter me from protecting Nnamdi Kanu. I advise anyone who come after me to reconsider because no one can kill me.
“I’m a man of destiny on a divine mission,” he says. God has appointed me as Kanu’s and IPOB’s legal counsel. I’ll stick by him until victory is assured. We only need prayers and patience from Biafrans. Please pray for him, as well as his lawyers.”
“Nothing spectacular will happen that day,” the IPOB counsel claimed before of the court hearing on July 26. I can assure you of that. As usual, we’ll be on hand to accept applications. We’ll take it from there if there are any changes.
“We’re still dealing with the three-count charge. We also have an application that has been overdue for hearing, relating to the invasion of his home, which resulted in the deaths of 28 people.
“All of the photographic proof is in our possession. We’ll present them to the court, and the court will examine them to guarantee that justice is served”.
