MNK: IPOB Lawyer Alleges FG Using Tactics To Keep Nnamdi Kanu In Perpetual Detention


The lawyer of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Ifeanyi Ejiofor has alleged that the federal government  employs various methods  to keep his client in perpetual detention.

Ejiofor, who appeared on Rhythm 94.7 FM Radio program tagged ‘View Point’ on Thursday,  based his claim on the ground that since 2015 the IPOB Leader was sued before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, the federal government had amended its treasonable felony charges against him seven times.

Nnamdi Kanu is standing trial before Justice Binta Nyako over charges bordering on alleged terrorism and treasonable felony,  filed against him by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

“They(FG) are not ready to hear this case, they are not even ready to try Nnamdi Kanu, what they want to do is they are applying all methods known to them to keep Nnamdi Kanu in perpetual detention. That’s what they are doing.

“I have done many cases, when a counsel is deposed for accelerated hearing of the matter, you will know.

“How can you tell me that a charge has been amended seven times since 2015.

“The last one they amended made it seven times they amended their charge, either reducing or increasing and the court will keep on striking some of them out,” Ejiofor said on the program.
