Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers to FG: We are prepared for fireworks
Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lead counsel to the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has asked the Federal Government and others to expect “legal fireworks” on Thursday.
He also said the IPOB legal team is “eminently prepared”.
He said this while reacting to the amended charges by the Federal Government against his client.
In an update posted on his Facebook page, Ejiofor also said his client is in high spirit ahead of the arraignment.
Ahead of his arraignment on October 21, the detained leader of tIPOB had asked millions of his supporters to embark on a dry fast.
The PUNCH had reported that the Federal Government filed an amended seven counts against Nnamdi Kanu, according to one of his lawyers, Maxwell Opara.
Opara stated this in a short interview with journalists on the premises of the Federal High Court in Abuja when he accompanied Senator Ifeanyi Uba to file a motion on notice, seeking an order granting him leave to visit Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services.
“The Federal Government has filed an amended seven counts against Kanu”, he said with no details.
Reacting to the development, Kanu’s lead counsel Ejiofor said, “I and my colleague, Alloy Ejimakor, had a very fruitful visitation to Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We discussed a wide range of matters, especially concerning Hearing in his case and appearance in court on 21st October, 2021. There will be more on this later.
“The coast is now clear for legal fireworks this Thursday, particularly now that we have been served with a purported “Amended Charge” in the Case. We are eminently prepared for Thursday’s outing, and you won’t be disappointed.
“Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is in good spirit, awaiting his auspicious outing on Thursday, the 21st Day of October, 2021. He commended those who are in the spirit with him while declaring that Chukwuokike Abiama has ordained this special Day for a victorious outing.
“He requested that the fasting, supplications, and prayers should continue, as he noted that they are strongly impacting positively.
“He further implored UmuChineke to be steadfast, and keep their eyes steadily on the ball and pray without ceasing, while believing very strongly that this present situation will pass too and it shall end in Praises.
“This THURSDAY is the D-Day, and your solidarity/support must be demonstrated within the confines of the law, as you have always shown. Punch
