The lead counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Barr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor says he is confident his client would come out victorious ahead of the hearing next week.
The IPOB leader is expected to appear before Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja, from January 18.
Ejiofor, who gave this assurance in a statement made available to journalists on Friday, could not hide his excitement after visiting Kanu at the DSS detention facility in Abuja.

“In the course of the visit to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, our discussions focused primarily on our final preparations for the legal battle that would resume on the turf of the Federal High Court, Abuja Judicial Division, from next week and on subsequent adjourned dates, if any.
“We coalesced the product of our individual reflections on the most potent legal strategies henceforth to be adopted, fine-tuned and harmonised them, and then distilled them into a single, conclusive, potent, workable formula. We are optimistic that the court outings of Onyendu would be impressive. Onyendu himself is in high spirit.
“Our discussions with him further reassured him and strengthened his determination to persevere unrelentingly. I declare to you, Umuchineke, that Onyendu is fully prepared to appear in court as from January 18, 2022. He is rooting for victory and knows that, with the help of Chukwuokike Abiama, victory is assured.
“You will all behold with your eyes an interesting dimension in the harmonised workable formula we have evolved. The detractors of Onyendu will be comprehensively humbled and permanently put to shame.
“Further, Onyendu utilized the opportunity afforded by our visit to mandate us to admonish his teeming supporters and followers,” the statement read.
