IPOB: Nnamdi Kanu Takes Side As US Lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor Clash



Court Strikes Out Six Remaining Charges Against IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu

The embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has backed Ifeanyi Ejiofor following a rift between his legal team.

Naija News had earlier reports that Kanu’s US lawyer and spokesperson Bruce Fein had asked Ejiofor to stop defending the IPOB leader following a fraud allegations levelled against him (Ejiofor) by a businessman.

In a statement on Friday released through Ejiofor, Nnamdi Kanu asked his supporters and lawyers not to lose faith as victory is sure for them.

The pro-Biafra activist asked his legal team to always make out time to hang out and enjoy some bottles of drinks.

He urged Ejiofor to be strong and even stronger in the coming days, assuring that he will always have his back.

Nnamdi Kanu said: “The court-ordered routine visit to our indefatigable client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was observed on (Thursday) March 3, 2022. After days, which turned into weeks of grandstanding, we were able to meet with our client- Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“In his unshaken/undeterred resolve, Onyendu was in high spirits as he took time to explain why he protested against the denial of access to his lawyers during the last three successive visits.

“He was deeply troubled with those incidents, particularly when it was done in flagrant disregard and violation of extant orders of the court. We understood Onyendu’s grouse and seized the opportunity to intimate him of the measures we have taken so far to ensure that such ugly incident does not reoccur.

“Onyendu used the opportunity to offer advice and words of encouragement, particularly to myself. He took his time to urge me to remain resolute and focused, and never to be distracted by the deliberate evil ploys of the enemies to break me.

“Indeed, Onyendu saw tomorrow! Unknown to him that at the time he was handing down these words of encouragement and encomium, the slander mongers were hurriedly putting together another stunt which, was, however, dead on arrival.

“Onyendu particularly encouraged me to be strong and even stronger in the coming days. He said that I should expect more and more slander, but I should be assured that he and Umuchineke will always be there for me.

“We all agreed that this is a very critical period as victory is staring on our faces and, any opportunity offered to be distracted will take us back because the enemies are united in their resolve but their evil plots are all surmountable.

“As for me, I am firm and solid any day any time. I remain firm like the rock of Gibraltar! Forward ever and backward never. On a lighter note, Onyendu requested his visiting team to make out time to hang out and enjoy some bottles of drinks.

“In summary, Onyendu is in a very strong and firm spirit now than before. He implores all his followers and Umuchineke to remain undivided, resolute, and unshaken in their resolve for victory.

“Onyendu assures everyone that he will come out victorious and stronger. He commended his supporters and Umuchineke, and urged you to remain prayerful and continue to be peaceful in your conduct as you have always demonstrated over time. Onyendu is profoundly proud of you all.
