Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has denied he is “missing” in the Department of State Services (DSS) facility.
Ejiofor made this clear in a statement on Friday titled, “Important clarification”.
The lawyer noted that contrary to reports, particularly an audio clip circulating online that Kanu was missing, the embattled IPOB leader was still in detention.
He said Kanu was in the DSS facility and he visited him (Kanu) on Thursday.
The statement read, “Please UMUCHINEKE, kindly ignore the audio message being mischievously promoted/circulated by the enemies of our people, to the effect that ONYENDU MAZI NNAMDI KANU is missing in the DSS facility.
“The information is fake, a blatant lie, and should be totally ignored by Ezigbo UMUCHINEKE.
“As a matter of fact, court-ordered routine visit was conducted yesterday and ONYENDU spent time with those that visited him.
“Thank you and God bless. Always keep your eyes on the ball.”
IPOB had recently claimed there was an alleged plot to attack its leader at the Kuje Prison by men of the DSS.
