The Leader of IPOB is still missing after weeks and a lot questions have been asked as to his where about. It was recalled that the British Government has asked the Federal Government to provide an update on his status.
Now his lawyer has revealed the IPOB Leader was in distress the last time he heard from him. The lead lawyer representing the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has disclosed his last conversation with Nnamdi Kanu.
Ejiofor who has been lamenting of his inability to reach Kanu since the military stormed his Afara-Ukwu, Umuahia, Abia State home. In a chat with Saturday Sun, he recalled that he got a call from Kanu on 14th September that army personnel were shooting sporadically around his house.
“I quickly issued a statement which was widely published on the social media alerting the world of what was going on; that my client was under siege as the military was shooting for over 40 minutes trying to gain access into the house.
“He called me again that they were at the gate shooting to gain access, I asked him to remain inside, while I continued to let the world know. That was our last communication and I never heard from him again after the attack. And the rest is now story.”
Speaking on the issue of sureties who are expected to produce the IPOB leader in court, Ejiofor said they cannot be touched “because the circumstance that presented itself is such that had gone beyond the sureties’ control.
“In legal parlance, it’s called force majeure. It’s not a situation they would be able to control. The court is a human being; it can listen to our application. If at all this incident never took place and by tomorrow we start looking for Nnamdi Kanu, they will be told to go and produce him.
