Shocking! Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer Cries Out That His Life Is In Danger
Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, a personal lawyer Nnamdi Kanu has cried out that some unknown person is trying to kill me. This came on the heels when he revealed that he was going to make sure his client gets justice shortly after Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest.
The legal counsel to the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Ifeanyi Ejiofor, on Monday, alleged that his life was under threat by forces he refused to disclose.
He called for protection by the Nigerian government while alleging that his private residence had been invaded a number of times and people killed.
Ejiofor dropped the hint while granting an interview on Arise Television, on Monday morning.
It would be recalled that this is not the first time Ejiofor would be making the claim, as he had also previously cried out in the early days when his client was arraigned for alleged treason by the Nigerian govt.
He lamented that he doesn’t know what he has done to deserve to be killed, stating that his only crime is that he is defending IPOB, “which is within my constitutional rights as a lawyer”.
He said, “I want to appeal to you and the world to tell the government that I have to be protected because my life is under threat as I speak to you as his lawyer.
“Attempts have been made on my life, people were killed in my premises, I cannot move, I cannot sleep now with my two eyes closed. Let the world intervene in this case because I must be given protection to defend my clients.
“I don’t know what I have done to deserve to be killed. Because am defending IPOB. It’s within my constitutional right as a lawyer to defend anybody that comes across to me and I am doing justice to that.
“So let me use this opportunity and this platform to appeal to the world to prevail on the Federal Government to protect my life, and stop those who are hell-bent on killing me.
“They have been looking for me all over the place to kill, not that I have committed any offence known to law but they want to assassinate me at all cost by any means.”
