Nnamdi Kanu with his lawyers


Legal counsel to the leader of the Indigenous People ofBiafra, Alloy Ejimakor, on Monday, said the IPOB leader was looking forward to being vindicated ahead of his trial which is scheduled for Wednesday, November 10, 2021.

Ejimakor disclosed this in an interview with The PUNCH on Monday.

The PUNCH reports that Kanu, the leader of the separatist group, who has been facing trial since 2016, was granted bail in April 2017.

In September that year, he fled the country after the invasion of his home in Afara-Ukwu, near Umuahia, Abia State, by the military.

On July 29, the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, SAN, said he had been rearrested and brought back to the country.

The failure of the Department of State Security to produce the IPOB leader at the scheduled proceedings on July 26 attracted condemnation by his lawyers and Igbo leaders.

On October 21, 2021, the Federal High Court in Abuja adjourned his case till November 10, 2021.

However, speaking to our correspondent on Monday, Ejimakor who visited his client told The PUNCH that Kanu was looking forward to being vindicated.

He said, “I had a fruitful visitation today with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the company of my colleagues, Barr Ejiofor & Barr Maxwell.

“We went over his next outing in court on 10th November. He remains the strong man. He said he looks forward to being vindicated. He greets his followers and supporters.”
