The lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor, of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said efforts are already been made to release his client.
Leakblast.com reports that Ejiofor stated this in a series of posts on his Twitter page on Thursday.
Ejiofor said all efforts would be made to ensure the IPOB leader regains freedom soon, adding that Nnamdi Kanu’s legal team would not fail.
He wrote: “Umuchineke, please be firm, and less-distracted, the present situation is receiving desired attention from every quarter.
“We are not leaving any space for anything untoward to happen to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. He will soon regain his freedom, despite all the shenanigans playing out now.
“Chukwuokike is with us, and can never fail us. We are keeping on within our professional capacity.
“We Shall keep you updated regularly. But be calm, focused and prayerful, that this period too will come to pass, and it shall all end in praises. Forward ever.”
Recall that IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu was reportedly rearrested in Kenya and extradited back to Nigeria on the 27th of June, 2021.
He was then arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako who ordered his remand in the custody of the DSS until his next trial date which is July 26 and 27.
Kanu, who is facing an 11-count charge of treason, treasonable felony, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms, among others, jumped bail in 2017 and left the country, only to re-emerge in Israel and then in the United Kingdom.
