ABUJA – Lawyer to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor has expressed elation upon the reappearance of his client, whose whereabouts has been unknown since 400 days, following the military invasion of his homestead. In a statement made available to The Biafra Times correspondent on Saturday, the legal luminary bespoke delight owing to the reappearance of Nnamdi Kanu in safety, after 13 months of his awful exit.
According to Ejiofor, ” I woke up yesterday to a scintillating news making round the social and online media to the effect that my client, Nnamdi Kanu, was sighted in Jerusalem during a prayer session. Initially, I wanted to disbelieve it but for the source, struggling at the same time to come to reality that God has kept to His Promises after the murderous invasion of his home on the 14th day of September 2017, by rampaging Nigerian Soldiers, that saw the horrific blood carnage witnessed in his home on this black day; but the God of Isaac, Abraham, and Jacob has put enemies to shame, by the development of yesterday.
“On the face of this cheerful news staring my face, I immediately intensified effort to ascertain the veracity or otherwise of the video clip. Only this morning, I received a direct confirmation from my client, hearing once from him after 13months in captivity. I am very delighted, therefore, to use this singular opportunity to announce to the world that my client is the very person seen in the pictures and video. That I can confirm authoritatively.
“I cannot forget in a haste the anxiety that had enveloped me for this past 13 months. The anxiety over the uncertainty of his safety after my last contact with him on the 14th day of September 2017. A day I can never forget for the rest of my life.
“Furthermore, the shocking tale of how he made it alive once again will be made public in his scheduled world press broadcast to be beamed live within the next 24 hours. The general public and indeed the world is advised to keep a date with this broadcast. The world will now hear from the horses mouth, the gory accounts of what happened in my client’s home on the 14th day of September 2017, only tomorrow.”
Speaking on the underlying issues concerning the horrible event that transpired on September 14, 2017, he said that the Nigeria army is still answerable to the cause of his client’s disappearance.
“It’s not yet over for the Nigerian Soldiers, because they are still under a compelling duty to offer explanation to the court why they moved their Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC) into the home of my client on the 14th day of September 2017 and the genocidal massacre of over fifty (50) members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in my client’s home.
“Thank you all for your prayers which had sustained him throughout the period of 13 months in captivity. To His most Mighty name shall all the glory be ascribed unto.”
