The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has met with his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor from his detention under the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS) for the first time since his last arraignment in court.
Ejiofor who is Kanu’s lead counsel revealed this in a statement on Monday saying the IPOB leader sent a message to the members of his proscribed group, expressing gratitude to all those who are fighting for his release.
Ejiofor had alleged many times that the DSS had refused him access to his client in violation of a court order. Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja therefore ordered the DSS to grant Ejiofor access to his client, Kanu, without any further delay.
He said, “After weeks of speculations and uncertainties, we have finally seen our Client-Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We can authoritatively confirm this position to the world. He is firm and stable, less the burden of solitary confinement and concomitant mental torture arising therefrom.
“Though the Detaining Authority is giving him medical attention, he still requires advanced medical care, which formed a substantial part of the relief in our application before the Court.
“He specifically requested that we should extend his heartfelt compliment to millions of his supporters worldwide and all foreign Governments and institutions who are relentlessly following up. Media houses are indeed not left out of this classification.
“We are winning but your prayers are doing wonders, don’t relent, as you continue to remain law-abiding.”
