Kanu’s Counsel Makes Demand As He Appears In Court Today

Kanu’s Counsel Makes Demand As He Appears In Court Today

The lead counsel to Mazi Nnamdi  Kanu, Barr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor has placed demands on the Nigerian Government and law enforcement agencies. Information Guide Nigeria

Ejiofor, who relayed this in a press conference, on Wednesday, in Garki, Abuja, said he decided to brief the press against the backdrop of the seven-count smokescreen amended charge filed against his client last week Friday, after waiting for the over-advertised/hyped amendment for over three months.

The lead counsel also said: “You may recall that upon the abduction of our client in Kenya on June 19, 2021, and his extraordinary rendition to Nigeria afterwards, he was secretly brought to court on June 29, 2021, without our knowledge,” he said.

According to him,  it was as a result of the failure of the Nigerian Government to notify Kanu’s lawyers of the proceedings of June 29, 2021, that they were unavoidably absent, adding that when the matter came up on the adjourned date of July 26, 2021 for commencement of hearing in the case, “our client, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was not produced in court.” jamb results

He however expressed hope that the incident of failing to bring Kanu to court will not repeat itself on Thursday, as reported by THE GUARDIAN, in Ejiofor words:

“As the world is now aware, today, being October 21, 2021, is the date on record, collectively agreed in open court by all parties for the commencement of hearing in our client’s case.

“We, therefore, demand as follows:
• That today, October 21, 2021, should be sacrosanct. Our client, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, must and shall be produced in court to face his trial. Thankfully, the Director of Public Prosecutions of the Federation has though belatedly filed a seven-count amended charge, along with an affidavit of completion of investigation, there is no excuse or place to hide whatsoever again to justify doing the contrary.

• That the security agents, ostensibly to be deployed to man the court and its environs, or detailed to provide security on October 21, 2021, should be manifestly civil in their conduct towards the civilian populace who are expected to throng the court in their numbers in solidarity.”

Ejiofor said it was on record that over 20 persons all from Ebonyi State including a lawyer, who was in court on July 26 to witness the hearing on the case were intercepted and arrested on their way back home, at Lokoja by the security operatives.
