The Lead counsel for the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has called for payers for his client amidst backlashes following the suspension of the sit-at-home order.
WuzupNigeria reported that the suspension of the sit-at-home order in protest against the arrest and detention of its embattled leader comes after last Monday’s protest turned bloody.
According to Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Kanu who remains in detention of the Department of State Services needs prayers and not insults in the midst of the current legal fireworks.
The PUNCH reports that Ejiofor stated this on Saturday in a statement titled ‘Press Statement.’
It read, “I have observed with dismay, the avalanche of emails and messages from Umuchineke unanimously prodding for a clarification /confirmation on the highlights of the press statement issued by the leadership of our client yesterday, suspending their Sit-at-home Order.
“I cannot stop being shocked by the manifested lack of trust/disbelief expressed over the authenticity of the message.
“There is, therefore, an urgent need that facts are put in their proper perspectives,” Ejiofor said.
“We at the legal team are increasingly becoming embarrassed with the unfortunate manner in which some people, ostensibly moles, notorious for mischief, are deliberately dragging us into the decision making arm of the movement, a position which we never represent.
“Responsive listeners/followers should always be smart to decipher the language methodology messages are being conveyed by their leadership at every point in time. You people call it C. and C.
“Introducing insinuations, fundamentally unconnected with the intended motive only means you still have a long way to go.”
Ejiofor called on the people to do away with propaganda, gossip, mischief, campaign of calumny and pay attention to messages from recognised sources.
He added, “For your information, if you are expecting me to write it, or answer your questions in black and white, perhaps in a manner that even my aged mother in the village will nod her head in appreciation of the content, then you are very far from getting it here.
“An Igbo proverb says “atuolu omalu, omalu mana atuolu ofeke ofeyi isi na ofia”.
“I believe these few words should aid you further in understanding the direction we are driving at.
“What our client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and we in the legal team, essentially need in this moment of legal fireworks is your prayers and supplications, and not insults /disparaging remarks.
“We are under compelling obligation to be upright at all times, regularly update you people on things you need to hear from us regarding the happenings around our client.
“We have unblemishly managed IPOB briefs for over a decade, despite every intimidating odds / life-threatening situation, without recording any form of compromise. How do you now think we can deviate at this critical moment? Please be properly guided.
“Sooner than may be expected, the God’s anointed, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will regain his freedom. God is working it out.”
Ejiofor also stated that all hands must be on deck to see them realise this uncommon feat, within the shortest time possible.
