Counsel to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has said Nnamdi Kanu would never jump bail if he is still alive.
Ejiofor said this while disclosing that Kanu had not been seen since September 14 when men of the Nigerian Army allegedly invaded the IPOB leader’s residence in Umuahia, the Abia State capital.
Speaking with newsmen, Ejiofor maintained that it is now the responsibility of the federal government to produce Kanu in court on his next adjourned date.
According to Ejiofor: “The fact is that they are in a position to produce him at the next adjourned date. It is public knowledge that my client had before his house was invaded, always made himself available for trial.
“He never evaded trial as he made it known that he was ready. If he wanted to jump bail, he would have done so immediately he was released from prison. But he did not run.
“The last time I spoke with my client was the day his house was invaded by soldiers. He called me and complained that he was being attacked by soldiers who he said were shooting sporadically. since then, I have not heard from my client again.
“If he is alive, they should tell the court on that day. They will not only explain to the trial court, but will also produce the soldiers that went to his home to attack him.”
