The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has corroborated the news of the re-arrest of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Federal Government.
Kanu was extradited from the UK by joint forces of the Nigerian security operatives and the Interpol. In a statement by Bar. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, IPOB/Nnamdi Kanu lead Counsel, he asked that Kanu’s fundamental rights must be respected while in custody.
As it is in the public domain, the matter has been consequently adjourned to the 26th Day of July 2021, for Continuation of Trial. The legal team ably led by my humble self will meet them in court on this date.
We insist that he must be given a fair hearing/trial which is his constitutionally protected right. His safety as also guaranteed under our law throughout the trial and afterwards, should be enforced.
Our fortified Legal team will be meeting to agree on strategies within the context of the Charge and disposition of the Court. Await further update from us as we progress.
Thank you and remain blessed.
Bar. Ifeanyi Ejiofor
IPOB/Nnamdi Kanu lead Counsel.
