Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lead counsel to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that the present incarceration of his client offered him the opportunity to “identify the chaff mixed with wheat” which is a lesson for him.
Ejiofor disclosed this in a statement from his visit to Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Monday.
In the statement obtained by SaharaReporters on Tuesday, Ejiofor stated that Kanu had learnt an interesting lesson that would prepare him for a great task ahead.
The statement read, “Our routine visit to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was indeed a special one. We extensively discussed on proactive steps being explored by our legal team to ensure his unconditional release. His worries on those deliberately deviating from his divine preaching were highlighted and well noted.
“Onyendu was also briefed on relevant legal remedies being resorted to command immediate and total obedience to court pronouncements, particularly where the directive of the court is ostensibly availing in the prevailing circumstance.
“We have complied with all steps directed by the court in the likely event that the lawless DSS breach its order(s). We may not delve into the details now but, be assured that the detaining authority is fully aware of these steps and obviously being cautious/circumspect of their actions and inactions henceforth.”
According to Ejiofor, Kanu remains strong and appreciate his followers in their unflinching support for him.
“Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is visibly firm in his convictions and only worried over those he predicted long ago that would disappoint him, and not the other way round.
“Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s present incarceration in the lawless DSS Dungeon offered him the opportunity to identify the chaff discretely mixed with wheat long before now. It is an interesting lesson that is preparing him for the greater tasks ahead.
“He is fully aware that his freedom is near and will happen like a miracle. On our part, we have crossed all the t’s and dotted all the i’s. Onyendu’s best compliments remain with his true and ardent followers. I struggled to conduct this visit yesterday even when my medical situation said otherwise, but I shall always be there for Onyendu no matter the circumstance I find myself. Your prayers are truly impacting and I am doing better this morning,” the statement added.
