Obinwannem News Finally IPOB Lawyer visits Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody

After several failed attempts by IPOB’s Lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor to gain access to Nnamdi Kanu, on Monday DSS permitted his visit to his client in Abuja.

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, confirmed his visit to journalist, noting that Kanu is “firm and stable”, but he still needs advanced medical attention to boost his health condition.

He stressed that Kanu had appreciated his supporters worldwide and all foreign government over their unrelenting supports in following up with the case.

An update of his visit was sent to Sahara Reporters, on what transpired during the visit.

Ejiofor said, “After weeks of speculations and uncertainties, we have finally seen our Client-Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We can authoritatively confirm this position to the World.

“He is firm and stable, less the burden of solitary confinement and concomitant mental torture arising therefrom. Though the detaining authority is giving him medical attention, he still requires advanced medical care, which formed substantial part of the relief in our application before the Court.

“He specifically requested that we should extend his heartfelt compliment 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.

“We are winning but your prayers are doing wonders, don’t relent, as you continue to remain law abiding. We shall continue to keep you all in constant communication on every development around him particularly now that the visit will be more regular than before.”

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja had last Monday adjourned the trial of Kanu to October 21, due to failure of Nigerian Government to produce him in court.

When the matter was called up, the prosecution counsel, M. B. Abubakar, had informed the court that the matter was slated for hearing and that they were ready to continue.

But Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Ejiofor, had informed the court that there was a pending application before the court to transfer Kanu from the custody of the DSS.

Justice Binta Nyako had stated that the trial could not continue in the absence of the IPOB leader since he was not available.
