How Nnamdi Kanu might receive news of beheaded lawmaker — Lawyer

IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, one of the lawyers of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, on Sunday condemned the beheading of a member of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Okechukwu Okoye, by his abductors.

In a statement on Sunday, Mr Ejiofor said Mr Kanu would be gravely shocked and saddened by the beheading of the lawmaker, having previously and severally mandated him in the past to condemn such barbaric act on his behalf.

“This is the latest in a spree of mindless and barbaric killings that have been going on in the Sout-East in recent times,” the statement reads.

“We, Igbos have been known for our hospitality, love and open door policy to all and sundry. We take pride in being industrious by making something out of nothing wherever we find ourselves on this planet earth.

“May I assure you all at this point in time, that my indefatigable client, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will be gravely shocked, and saddened by this dastardly act too, having previously and severally mandated me in the past to condemn such barbaric act on his behalf.

“No doubt, our enemies have boldly infiltrated our land and now operating unchecked. Hence, there must be an immediate stop to these dastardly acts by these blood sucking demons currently desecrating our land.

“We, therefore, call on every well-meaning person living in the South-East, to join hands together to provide relevant information that would help to fish out these marauders, so that they are publicly dealt with in line with the dictates of the law.

“It is the collective responsibility of everyone to rise up to this challenge. This is not in our culture, and certainly not our style. The time is now!!!”

Okoye and his aide were kidnapped on May 15. The lawmaker’s head was found at Chisco park in Amichi, Anambra.
