On Monday evening, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, one of Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers, claimed that his client is urging rumour-mongers not to claim that his brother, Kanunta Kanu, and one of his aides, Carolyn Okorafor, were involved in his detention in Kenya.
Kanu’s legal team claimed in a statement signed by Ejiofor and his colleague, Aloy Ejimakor, that the Biafra separatist leader is “pained” by the “false allegation” that some of his fans have regularly hurled against his collaborators.
Ejiofor’s statement, reads: “IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Onyendu has directed us to debunk the mischievous allegations that Kanunta Kanu, Carolyn Okoroafor & Nnennaya Anya have a hand in his abduction. He’s pained by such vicious allegations & he demands retraction.
Signed: Barr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor & Barr. Aloy Ejimakor.”
Kanu’s trial is slated for November 10 in Abuja.
