Nnamdi Kanu Frustrated, Contemplates Firing Lawyers [Details]

Detained leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is considering overhauling his legal team, Best News Network reports.

There is infighting within the legal team and Kanu is dissatisfied with factions contending to represent him and IPOB.

The separatist leader is accused of terrorism and has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since June 2021.

This newspaper can confidently report that the conflict and relevance battle is largely between Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Barrister Aloy Ejimakor. Kanu’s brother Kingsley ‘Kanunta’ Kanu is siding with Ejimakor.

Earlier, following Ejiofor’s misunderstanding with Bruce Fein, Kanu’s American attorney, the international lawyer was excluded from on-the-ground legal activities in Nigeria.

“Some of these people are fighting for superiority, fame, and money and not that they can do the job better than what has been done while others are merely using IPoB name and Kanu to fleece people who have been donating towards his cause.

“He is seriously worried to the point of accusing some of these people of working for pecuniary interest and not IPOB and he is contemplating firing some of those lawyers” a close source told the press.

Recently, the Court of Appeal in Abuja struck out the terrorism charges filed against Kanu by the Nigerian government and ordered his release from the custody of the Department of State Service (SSS).

The Court said the IPOB leader was “extra-ordinarily renditioned” to Nigeria and that the action was a flagrant violation of the country’s extradition treaty and also a breach of his fundamental human rights.

But Nigeria’s Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Abubakar Malami, argued that the court only discharged Kanu and did not acquit him.
