No plan to change our legal team, says IPOB

Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied reports alleging that it was shopping for a senior lawyer to lead its legal team handling the case of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in Abuja.

It said it had no issues with its legal team led by Ifeanyi Ejiofor, which it boasted had done the group proud in all ramifications.

In a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB described the report as a figment of the peddlers’ imagination, urging the public to disregard such.

The statement said: “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to ridiculous and misleading media reports that IPOB is shopping for a senior lawyer to lead our legal team handling the case of our leader in Abuja.

 

“Nothing can be further from the truth. We wish, therefore, to debunk such speculative report sponsored by our enemies to cause disaffection among us. The said report, which is only a figment of the imagination of the peddlers, never emanated from us. Such a thing is not in contemplation at all.

“We urge the public to disregard such media report, as it was planted by our oppressors to cause confusion. It is already dead on arrival

“IPOB has no issues with our legal team led by Ifeanyi Ejiofor. Our legal team has done us proud in all ramifications. We still repose confidence in our brilliant legal team, which has shown competence, capacity and prowess in all our legal matters. It’s only those who are intimidated by the capacity of our legal team that are behind these imaginary speculations.”
