The lead counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has appealed to his supporters to avoid any form of distraction at this critical moment.
Ejiofor advised Kanu’s supporters to rather be intensifying in your prayers and supplications as the trial date for his client gradually approaches.
The lawyer said this in a post on his verified Facebook page while reacting to a rumour making the round that the IPOB leader had been transferred to India.
Debunking the rumour as fake news, Ejiofor said they were with Kanu on Monday for pre-trial briefing and will still be with him tomorrow (Thursday).
His post read, “Please Umuchineke, and teeming followers of Our indefatigable Client-Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, this time should not be for any form of distraction.
“You all should rather be intensifying in your prayers and supplications to Almighty Chukwuokike Abiama as the D-Day gradually approaches.
“Do not give in to mischief makers who are currently parading FAKE NEWS that Our Client Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been transferred to India for whatever mischievous purpose they are insinuating.
“We were with him on Monday for pre-trial briefing and will still be with him tomorrow.
“Please your eyes should always be on the ball, do not be distracted at all.
Remain strong in spirit, and continue in your prayers and supplications.
“The Federal Government has no choice but to bring Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to Court on the 21st Day of October, it is an explicit order of Court. Thank you all and remain blessed.”
