Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer to Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has frowned at the Department of State Services, for granting access to a visitor to see Kanu in custody without the strict adherence to court guidelines.

Ejiofor, in an update he gave on Kanu on Monday which was obtained by SaharaReporters, lambasted the DSS for “throwing caution to the wind” and allowing a serving senator, Orji Uzor Kalu, access “even before the time scheduled for the formal visit and without his lawyers being present during the visit.”

The lawyer said, “Our yesterday’s routine visit to our Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was hugely insightful, following the successful twist in our introduced methodology. Though it may appear complex before some observers, it was very extant in the circumstance of this case.

“Meaningful interventions were reviewed, and legal steps we are exploring to continue to checkmate the aggressors within the ambit of legal inhibitions were thoroughly x-rayed.

“Kudos were given to deserving members of our Legal team who have remained outstanding in the discharge of their professional duties, as well as everyone of us who have remained relentless and resolute.

“Our client continues to admonish for peaceful co-existence of UmuChineke, unflinching support and unshaken loyalty.

“We can at best describe what transpired yesterday between a visitor whom the detaining authority ostensibly aided to violate the court-ordered guideline for visiting our Client as bizarre and unusual.

“The DSS is not oblivious of the terms of the court’s guideline which they have consistently maintained in the past that it must be obeyed to the letter, and through which position they had denied many friends and Attorneys of our Client, access to him.

“However, caution was thrown to the wind yesterday and instead of insisting on this full compliance with the existing guideline, the DSS for reasons best known to them allowed a visitor access to our Client even before the time scheduled for the formal visit and without his lawyers being present during the visit.

“It is of serious concern that the visit was conducted without strict adherence to the court ordered guideline, but more condescending that the visit later became a subject of political gimmicks. If we Our client’s Attorneys, his flesh and blood brothers, and his wife will visit him in due compliance with the court ordered guideline, how can the DSS authorise a visit from any other person in gross violation of this guideline?

“There is more to it than meets the eyes, which the DSS is now under a compelling duty to explain to us. Granted that his name appeared among the list submitted at the 11th hour alongside the names of the lawyers scheduled for the visit, but hurriedly proceeding to conduct the visit without us being present in line with the requirement of the guideline left us with many unanswered questions.

“We have initiated a formal process towards ensuring a thorough investigation of what transpired yesterday, and we shall not hesitate to formally address the world on this subject if there is any attempt to sweep our petition under the carpet.

“The Order of the court and terms as laid down guideline, to regulate visits to our Client is to ensure his maximum protection from persons who may wish to secretly seize the opportunity to hurt or intimidate him into accepting a false narrative outside the dungeon where he is being illegally detained, and they could achieve this through threats and/or coercion. Hence, the need for the presence of his lawyers before granting any audience.

“We may not wish to speak further on this subject or even discuss our Client’s position on this visit pending the outcome of investigation on the DSS authorised violation of the court ordered guideline.

“In as much as we have unequivocally demanded for an immediate investigation, we are not by any means insinuating that visitors of our client’s choice are not permitted or restrained from visiting him henceforth, but our position is that every visit to our Client must conform with the already set out guideline by the court.

“We shall keep you all updated as we navigate through this turbulent path, but just note that victory and nothing less than victory is our goal, and it shall surely end in VICTORY UmuChineke.”

SaharaReporters on Monday reported that Kalu, the Chief Whip of the Senate and former Governor of Abia State said he visited Kanu in the DSS custody.

Kalu had revealed that his meeting with the pro-Biafra separatist leader was based on his encouragement that he should consider certain consequences of his actions “for the sake of Igbo people.”

“This afternoon, I visited my brother, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody, Abuja. I met him in good health and care and we discussed as ‘Umunne’.

“In 2001 when I was Governor, I made his father Eze Israel Okwu Kanu, the traditional ruler of Akwara Ukwu and since then the family has been very close to me.

“I understand that Nnamdi has an insane amount of people rooting for his back home and I encouraged him to consider the consequences of certain actions and utterances for the sake of the same people.

“Even though, my ideology and his ideology are totally different, God has made us brothers and we can’t run away from each other. I owe him and Nigerians good counseling,” Kalu had said.
