Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lawyer to Nnamdi Kanu, has again accused the British Government of collaborating with those who rearrested the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Ejiofor disclosed this in a series of tweets, noting that the British Government has not visited Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
Recall that the British High Commissioner in Nigeria had expressed its readiness to provide consular assistance to the IPOB leader.
However, according to Ejiofor, British High Commission was yet to see his client, dismissing reports that officials of the British Government had visited him.
Ejiofor 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, 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, 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.
“I see a handful of compromised social 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.”
