Ifeanyi Ejiofor, counsel to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, says he can confirm that his client is “firm and stable” –beside the “burden of solitary confinement” and the “mental torture” he has been subjected to.
In a statement, Ejiofor said he had finally been allowed to see Kanu “after weeks of speculations and uncertainties,” but that the IPOB leader still requires “advanced medical care.”
“Though the detaining authority is giving him medical attention, he still requires advanced medical care, which formed a substantial part of the relief in our application before the court.
“He specifically requested that we should extend his heartfelt compliments to millions of his supporters worldwide and all foreign governments and institutions who are relentlessly following up.
“Media houses are indeed not left out of this classification,” he said.
He urged Kanu’s supporters to continue to pray for him, as their prayers are “doing wonders.”
He also urged them to be law-abiding, as they await further communication on every development around their leader, “particularly now that the visit (to Kanu) will be more regular than before.”
