The leader of IPOB advised his followers to never lose their concentration and to always keep an eye on the ball.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has promised his supporters that he will soon be released from prison.
Ifeanyi Ejiofor, IPOB’s legal representative, conveyed the message to Kanu during his visit to the Department for State Services (DSS) detention facility in Abuja on December 1, 2022.
Ejiofor claims that the IPOB leader also urged his followers to keep their attention on the task at hand as the legal team led by Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) developed a “robust strategy” for his release.
Ejiofor said the legal team had filed a new application to quash the Federal Government’s appeal to the Supreme Court against the Court of Appeal’s decision that earlier “discharged and prohibited further detention and/or trial/prosecution of Kanu.” He gave an update on his visit to Kanu.
Ejiofor’s word: “From every indication, the Federal Government has not demonstrated any willingness to prosecute the appeal, rather they merely intended to take advantage of the order for a stay of execution to buy time and further detain Onyendu, but this evil scheme is dead on arrival.
“Now, we have filed an application to dismiss the appeal; the Federal Government will have no other availing strategy to rely on.
“Onyendu welcomed the robust strategy being adopted by our erudite Lead Counsel, Chief Ozekhome (SAN), in ensuring that the law runs its full course. The detail of this strategy remains publicly undisclosed.”
