UK envoy never visited Nnamdi Kanu at DSS facility —Bar Ejiofor
The lawyer to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor has debunked reports that the British High Commissioner visited his client at the detention facility of the Department of State Security (DSS).
Barrister Ejiofor made the denial in a statement he issued on Friday titled “Clarification on falsehood being circulated over various social media platforms.”
The Human Rights activists stressed that Nnamdi Kanu is currently being held incommunicado and blamed the British Government for collaborating with those that kidnapped his client in Kenya.
He said: “For your information, neither the British High Commissioner in Nigeria nor any one representing/acting for them has visited Our Client- Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at DSS detention facility.
“He is currently being held incommunicado. I can authoritatively confirm this position to you today.
“Stop believing the falsehood being dished out in the public space by mischief makers.The purveyors of fake news have always been at it.
“When I talk about a collaboration between the British Government and those that kidnapped Our Client in Kenya, I meant every word spoken there.
“Thankfully, force of law has been activated through judicial process, before the British Court to ensure that their statutory obligation over their Nationale is asserted, without further ado.
“In this Political/Media trial of Our Client, I see a handful of Compromised socia media platforms, who are ostensibly feeding fat from the National treasury.
“But the majority of distinguished media houses are guided by good conscience in their reportage.
“We definitely commend them.
“Always visit our social media handles for accurate account of that is happening around our Client.
“May Chukwuokike continue to strengthen and protect him in this trying time. In the end, it SHALL surely end in praises.”
Nnamdi Kanu, it could be recalled is facing trial on charges bordering on treason, treasonable felony, sponsoring unlawful organisation, namely IPOB, mass killings, et al.
