Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has faulted claims that the embattled IPOB leader is “missing”.
Ejiofor made the clarification in a statement on Friday titled, ‘Important clarification”.
The lawyer said contrary to reports, particularly an audio clip circulating online that Kanu was missing, the IPOB leader was in detention.
He said Kanu was in the Department of State Services facility and he visited him (Kanu) on Thursday.
The statement read, “Please UMUCHINEKE, kindly ignore the audio message being mischievously promoted/circulated by the enemies of our people, to the effect that ONYENDU MAZI NNAMDI KANU is missing in DSS facility.
“The information is fake, a blatant lie and should be totally ignored by Ezigbo UMUCHINEKE.
“As a matter of fact, court-ordered routine visit was conducted yesterday and ONYENDU spent time with those that visited him.
“Thank you and God bless. Always keep your eyes on the ball.”
