The Indigenous People of Biafra’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, has pleaded with his supporters to “keep utmost civility in their conduct, as has always been demonstrated” before the case is heard by Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday (today).
The leader of IPOB, who is charged with terrorism, claimed to be in good spirits and prepared for the court hearings.
In a statement made on Monday, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Kanu’s lawyer and the leader of his legal team, disclosed them while paying a routine visit to his client at the Department of State Services headquarters.
In his letter, he stated: “We visited our unflappable client, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, at the DSS headquarters as per the normal court-ordered visit. The purpose of today’s visit was unusual because it essentially aimed to synchronize the final legal plan for tomorrow’s excursion. Onyendu is in high spirits and is well-prepared for his court appearance tomorrow. We have faith that justice will be served tomorrow as well.
“Onyendu praised Umuchineke and the millions of his followers for standing by him so long. Onyendu is particularly concerned about Mrs. Ukamaka Ejezie (Mama Biafracontinuing )’s detention, whose only crime was the courage to be in Abuja in support of him.
The legal team is actively investigating all conceivable legal avenues to guarantee Mama Biafra’s release. You may be aware that the court has scheduled a definite hearing for July 20, 2022, to address the application we submitted for her release.
“May we respectfully utilize this means to urge to Onyendu’s supporters, followers, and well-wishers who intend to come to court tomorrow in solidarity with Onyendu to please preserve total decency in their behavior, as they have always exhibited.”
