Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the principal counsel for incarcerated Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader Nnamdi Kanu, has verified and provided an update on the next hearing in the Nigerian government’s treasonable felony accusations against him.
Even as IPOB’s leader, Maxi Nnamdi Kanu, was scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, residents of the South-East were urged not to stay at home.
“We wish to tell Biafrans, supporters of Biafra, and lovers of freedom that our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will be in court tomorrow, December 2, 2021, in Abuja,” Emma Powerful, IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, said in a statement.
“We urge Biafrans living in Abuja and its environs to come out en mass to solidarize with our leader.
“There will be no lockdown tomorrow in any part of Biafra land as a result of the court appearance. Biafrans residents in Biafra land, as well as visitors to Biafra land, are free to go about their lawful businesses without fear of molestations or intimidation.
“We have not asked or authorized anybody to monitor or enforce any lockdown. Again, there will be no lockdown in Biafra land for tomorrow’s court appearance of our leader”.
Barrister Ejiofor, in a terse statement on Wednesday, hinted at the matter against Kanu, expressing gratitude to supporters of the rule of law and confirming the hearing of the ongoing applications on December 2, 2021.
He also thanked them for their sustained support and asked for their ardent and unwavering prayers for the incarcerated pro-biafra leader and the objectives set forth.
Ejiofor wrote, “UPDATE ON THE NEXT HEARING IN OUR CLIENT- ONYENDU MAZI NNAMDI KANU’S CASE:
“Greetings UmuChineke, we wish to notify you that Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case has been fixed for tomorrow, 2nd December, 2021, at the Federal High Court, Abuja, for the hearing of our pending applications.
“As always, your fervent prayers are solicited. VICTORY is our only goal and it will surely be achieved.
“Thank you all for your support and prayers thus far.”
