The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has made an appeal to his supporters who would appear in court for his trial next week.
Nnamdi Kanu Addresses His Supporters Ahead Of Trial
In a statement by his lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the IPOB leader charged his supporters to be civil in their conduct and comportment, “shun violence and defiant behavior in any manner or form, and exercise restraint in speech” during his next court appearance on Tuesday, 18th January 2022.
Ejiofor said Nnamdi Kanu was in “high spirits” and confident of victory in his trial.
He said, “We undertook our customary visit to Onyendu (Kanu) in DSS custody today. In the course of the visit, our discussions focused primarily on our final preparations for the legal battle that would resume on the turf of the federal high court, Abuja judicial division, from next week and on subsequent adjourned dates, if any.
“We coalesced the product of our individual reflections on the most potent legal strategies henceforth to be adopted, fine tuned and harmonised them, and then distilled them into a single, conclusive, potent, workable formula.
“We are optimistic that the court outings of Onyendu would be impressive. Onyendu himself is in high spirit. Our discussions with him further reassured him and strengthened his determination to persevere unrelentingly.
“Onyendu is fully prepared to appear in court as from the 18th of January, 2022. He is rooting for victory and knows that, with the help of Chukwuokike Abiama, victory is assured.
“Further, Onyendu utilised the opportunity afforded by our visit to mandate us to admonish his teeming supporters and followers.
“He advises those of them that would appear in court in demonstration of their unflinching support and loyalty to him to conduct themselves with decorum, be civil in their conduct and comportment, shun violence and deviant behaviour in any manner or form, and exercise restraint in speech.
“On our part, we have caused formal correspondences to issue on responsible, sovereign, democratic governments and other international institutions to prevail on the Nigerian government to caution uncouth and overzealous security agents.
“We can authoritatively declare to you, that those correspondences are receiving the requisite attention they deserve.
“We are optimistic that there would be a positive transformation in the conduct and general approach of the said overzealous security agents at the next appearance of Onyendu in court.”
KanyiDaily recalls that IPOB had said that President Muhammadu Buhari is making a grave mistake capable of consuming Nigeria if he fail to release Nnamdi Kanu.
