Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lead counsel to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has confirmed and given update on the next hearing in the treasonable felony charges preferred against Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian government.
This was even as IPOB had asked residents of the South-East not to sit at home on Thursday, as its leader, Maxi Nnamdi Kanu goes to court.
Emma Powerful, media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB in a statement partly said, “We wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be in court tomorrow, December 2, 2021, in Abuja.
“We urge Biafrans living in Abuja and its environs to come out en mass to solidarize with our leader.
“There will be no lockdown tomorrow in any part of Biafra land as a result of the court appearance. Biafrans residents in Biafra land, as well as visitors to Biafra land, are free to go about their lawful businesses without fear of molestations or intimidation.
“We have not asked or authorized anybody to monitor or enforce any lockdown. Again, there will be no lockdown in Biafra land for tomorrow’s court appearance of our leader”.
