Ifeanyi Ejiofor, counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has disclosed that the Biafra agitator is currently undergoing treatment for tinnitus ear infection.
Revealing the development in a statement after the routine meeting between Kanu and his legal team in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), in Abuja on Monday, Ejiofor noted that the team was exploiting all bottlenecks to ensure that Kanu regained freedom.
The statement read in part:
“Onyendu was impressed with the progress reports, particularly in respect to UmuChineke, whom we secured their bail in court last week, while efforts have been aggressively intensified for optimal results.
“Be assured that Onyendu’s legal team, ably led by our erudite Lead Counsel – Prof Mike Ozekhome, SAN, is seamlessly navigating all legal bottlenecks to ensure that Onyendu regains his freedom soon. We are not resting on our oars at all.
“Onyendu is still undergoing treatment within the DSS facility on the recently diagnosed tinnitus ear infection, which will require advanced medical attention.”
