Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the Lead Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu and the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) says Catriona Laing, the British High Commissioner in Nigeria did not visit his client in Department of State Services (DSS) detention where he is currently being held.
Ejiofor also described Nigerian-British citizen, Kanu as “a national treasure”, while slamming social media platforms he claims “are ostensibly feeding fat” from the 54-year-old’s ordeal.
The legal practitioner wrote thus on his known Twitter handle on Friday morning:
CLARIFICATION ON FALSEHOOD BEING CIRCULATED OVER VARIOUS SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS.
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, where 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, the force of law has been activated through the 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 an 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.
Thank you all and remain blessed.
