The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Lead Counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has assured supporters of the embattled IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu in detention of the Department of State Services (DSS), that his freedom may soon come.
Naija News reports that Ifeanyi Ejiofor, in a statement on Sunday, while announcing the release of Ukamaka Ejezie, an IPOB supporter popularly known as ‘Mama Biafra’, by the DSS, said his team were doing “everything legally permissible” to secure Kanu’s release from custody of the state service.
The 80-year-old woman was released on Sunday after more than three months in custody of the DSS.
Ejezie, who is said to be Kanu’s ‘foster mother’, was arrested on May 18, 2022 when she attended the IPOB leader’s court hearing at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
“I am very delighted to inform you all that Mrs Ukamaka Ejezie (Mama Biafra) has regained her freedom. She is now out of DSS dungeon. Thank thee ChukwuOkike Abiama for this huge success,” the lawyer said in a short release.
“We are not relenting, every prisoners of conscience , including Our indefatigable Client, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will soon regain their freedom,” he added.
