IPOB Press Release
June 21 2023 | IPOB
Following the recent attacks on IPOB lead counsels, the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) wish to debunk the fallacious and fabricated statement being peddled in the media that our lead counsels, Professor Mike Ozekhome, SAN, and Sir Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor has been dismissed as part of Mazi Nnamdi KANU’s legal representatives.
IPOB WORLDWIDE warns those spreading such laughable rumours to desist from that. IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi KANU, who engaged these dependable legal luminaries, are very confident in their legal prowess. It’s laughable for an inconsequential nincompoop to go on social media and announce the sacking of some people he did not hire.
What stupidity! Biafrans and lovers of Biafra freedom across the world should ignore the purported statement from the so-called brothers of our leader because Mazi Nnamdi KANU regards IPOB members as his brothers and sisters.
The legal representation contract between IPOB/Mazi Nnamdi KANU and Prof. Mike Ozekhome (SAN) and Sir Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor are still intact. They are not Kanu’s family lawyers but IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi KANU’s lawyers. We encourage our lead counsels and other members of the legal team not to be distracted or discouraged in their fight for the unconditional release of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi KANU from DSS dungeon as the Courts has ordered. The agenda of IPOB and MNK’s enemies is to get the lead counsels angry and abandon Mazi Nnamdi KANU. Their agenda is dead on arrival as the lead counsels are not amateur to intimidation and blackmail.
Mazi Nnamdi KANU once said publicly, “in this Biafra struggle, I have no brothers and no sisters except IPOB members”. Therefore, any so-called brother claiming of speaking for Mazi Nnamdi KANU in DSS dungeon is making a jest of himself. Mazi Nnamdi KANU is not in detention because of his family but because of Biafran’s freedom.
Everybody must be careful because Mazi Nnamdi KANU has gone beyond Kanu’s family. He is a leader and the face of Biafra. He is a national asset for Biafrans and must be protected from wolverine and jackals.
COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL, MEDIA, AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY FOR IPOB.
