He “stressed unity and tolerance on all sides” – Lawyer says after meeting Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody
Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu “stressed unity and tolerance on all sides” in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), his counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, has said.
Ejimakor stated this in a tweet on Sunday after meeting the IPOB leader in DSS custody.
He said that the meeting lasted four hours.
“Today, I met with Onyendu at the DSS. We spent nearly four hours. My interaction with him was fulfilling.
“He’s cheery and looks forward to overcoming this predicament sooner than later. Again, he stressed UNITY and tolerance on all sides. He has you all in his thoughts,” Ejimakor wrote.
Kanu is facing an 11-count charge bordering on treason, treasonable felony, terrorism, and illegal possession of firearms, among others before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
In 2017, he jumped bail after the court granted him bail on health grounds.
However, in June, he was arrested at an undisclosed location and extradited to Nigeria to continue his trial.
He has remained in the custody of the DSS since his return by order of Justice Nyako.
