The embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has called on his supporters to maintain absolute civility in their conduct.
Naija News reports that the pro-Biafra activist stated this as his case resumes before Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja today. In a statement on Monday by his legal team led by Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Nnamdi Kanu assured of his preparedness for his trial. He, however, called for the immediate release of Mrs. Ukamaka Ejezie (Mama Biafra), who he alleged was arrested for only showing solidarity with him. Ifeanyi Ejiofor wrote, “We conducted our routine court-ordered visit to our indefatigable client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at the DSS headquarters. Today’s visit was unique because it was basically to harmonise the final legal strategy for tomorrow’s outing. Onyendu is fully prepared for his court appearance tomorrow, and he is in good spirits. We are confident that justice will be done tomorrow too. “Onyendu thanked millions of his supporters and Umuchineke for standing shoulder to shoulder with him thus far. However, Onyendu is particularly worried over the continued incarceration of Mrs. Ukamaka Ejezie (Mama Biafra), whose only offense was daring to be in Abuja in solidarity with him. “The legal team is aggressively exploring all permissible legal frameworks to ensure Mama Biafra’s release. As you may be aware, the court has fixed July 20, 2022, for a definite hearing of the application we filed for her release. “May we respectfully use this medium to appeal to Onyendu’s followers, supporters, and well-wishers, who intend coming to court tomorrow in solidarity with Onyendu to please maintain absolute civility in their conduct, as have always demonstrated.”
