A lawyer for Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says the secessionist is preaching unity while in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Kanu was arrested in June and extradited to Nigeria to stand trial for treason.
Kanu was lured to an African country with the promise of a donation, then arrested.
IPOB leader is facing charges of treasonable felony over his campaign for secession, as well as his proposal to establish a republic of Biafra.
He jumped bail in 2017 after a military operation, codenamed “Operation Python Dance”, targeted his family house in Abia state.
In a tweet Sunday, Ejimakor said he met with Kanu for four hours, adding that the IPOB leader is cheerful in DSS custody.
During the meeting, Kanu spoke about unity and tolerance, according to the lawyer.
UPDATE: Today, I met with Onyendu at the DSS. We spent nearly 4 hours. My interaction with him was fulfilling. He’s cheery & looks forward to overcoming this predicament sooner than later. Again, he stressed UNITY and tolerance on all sides. He has you all in his thoughts.— aloy ejimakor (@AloyEjimakor) July 17, 2021
