Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu on Monday met with his brother for the first time since being detained by the Department of State Services.
Mr Kanu’s lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor revealed this in a Facebook post, with a photo of himself and the IPOB leader’s sibling Prince Emmanuel.
His post read, “We just concluded today’s routine visit on a very sound note. What made today’s visit unique is that today marks it the first Day Our Client -Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is setting his eyes on his sibling.
“In my company during the Family’s maiden visit to Our Client is Prince Emmanuel Kanu (Fine Boy), the Representative of Our Client’s family.
“Our Client- Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is very strong in spirit. You will hear the rest from Prince Emmanuel Kanu.
“Our Client- Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was visibly shocked by the unwarranted embarrassment, insults and criticism meted out to his Lawyers by those who should know better. The discipline he emphasised is the watchword, which is apparently lacking today.
“If at this point in time people who deliberately choose to be mischief-makers, are throwing accusations and insults on his Solicitors, he wonders when they will learn.
“Note for the umpteenth time for those who care to listen, that nothing on the face of this earth will make us compromise or change our ways. We are whiter than white! Thank you and God bless you all.”
Kanu is due for another court appearance in October where he is facing charges of terrorism and treasonable felony among others.
Despite suspending the sit-at-home order imposed on the south-east every Monday by IPOB, south-east residents continue to observe the exercise.
