Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lead counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has given a fresh update on his health condition.
Recall that last Thursday, Ejiofor was denied access to visit his client who has been held in the custody of the Department of Security Service, DSS in Abuja following a court ruling.
Reacting, Ejiofor lampooned the DSS for their inability to obey court order by allowing him to see his client.
However, Barrister Ejiofor did not stop there, he went further to obtain a court application which gave him the warrant to visit his client for the second time.
Today, Monday, 2nd August – Barrister Ejiofor finally got access to meet with his client.
Given an update on Kanu’s health which according to him, has been bad following the torture he received in Kenya before he was brought back to Nigeria, Ejiofor said, Kanu is living in good but also requires advanced medical attention.
In a Twitter post, Ejiofor wrote; “After weeks of speculations and uncertainties, we have finally seen our Client-Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“We can authoritatively confirm this position to the World.He is firm and stable, less the burden of solitary confinement and concomitant mental torture arising therefrom.
“Though the Detaining Authority is giving him medical attention but he still requires advanced medical care, which formed substantial part of the relief in our application before the Court.
“He specifically requested that we should extend his heartfelt compliment to Millions of of his supporters worldwide and all foreign Governments and institutions who are relentlessly following up. Media houses are indeed not left out of this classification.
“We are winning but your prayers are doing wonders, don’t relent, as you continue to remain law abiding.
