Nnamdi Kanu is not missing – Lawyer

IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu is not missing as alleged, one of his lawyers Ifeanyi Ejiofor said Friday.

Mr Ejiofor said in a tweet that he met Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Thursday, adding that a viral audio message suggesting that the IPOB leader was missing was false.

“Please UMUCHINEKE, kindly ignore the audio message being mischievously promoted/circulated by the enemies of our people, to the effect that ONYENDU MAZI NNAMDI KANU is missing in DSS facility,” he said.

“The information is fake, a blatant lie and should be totally ignored by Ezigbo UMUCHINEKE. As a matter of fact, court-ordered routine visit was conducted yesterday and ONYENDU spent time with those that visited him.”

Kanu has been in DSS custody since he was re-arrested and brought back to Nigeria from a contentious location in June 2021.

He has been appearing in court in Fendi designer clothes ever since.
