The lead counsel to Nnamdi Kanu,Ifeanyi Ejiofor has called on the Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu to disclose how he gained access to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB who is in the detention of the Department of State Services, DSS.
Ejiofor in a statement he signed on Saturday, described Kalu’s visit to Kanu as a “cheap political stunts and hypocritical pretensions.”
Ejiofor disclosed that he was informed on Monday that a politician had expressed a desire to see Kanu; this, he said, made him compile a fresh list of visitors submitted to the secret police.
The lawyer stressed that as a result of the system in place, Kalu could not be allowed to visit the IPOB leader in detention that same day.
However, the former Abia governor was said to have wittingly gained access to the facility, which caused a delay for Kanu’s lawyers.
While Ejiofor called on Kalu to explain how he gained access to Kanu, he added that the politician’s visit to the IPOB leader was no more than an empty positioning for political gains ahead of 2023.
