According to Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lead counsel to Nnamdi Kanu and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), operatives of the Nigerian Army and Department of State Services have entered his home and have been firing sporadically.
Ejiofor, who posted the disturbing tweets early Sunday morning, June 6, says he did nothing wrong and that it could be his last tweet.
A team of police and army is currently at my house shooting sporadically on sight, to arrest me. As a lawyer, i am not guilty of any crimes known to law. My life is in no danger. I am not sure where I will go from here.
In a follow up tweet, he wrote;
“Pray for me and my family. You may not hear from me again until further notice.”
Nnamdi Kanu and Femi Fani-Kayode have reacted to his distress tweet.
Nnamdi Kanu wrote; “The world MUST be put on notice that for the second time, the country home of Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor has been surrounded by @HQNigerianArmy, @PoliceNG & DSS in a bid to assassinate him. It is imperative that this latest provocation is stopped. This is why they banned @Twitter.”
FFK on his part, wrote; “I just spoke with Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor who is one of my lawyers & a lawyer to IPOB & @MaziNnamdiKanu. He told me that his Anambra home has been flooded by soldiers, policemen & DSS operatives & that they are shooting in an attempt to kill him.For God sake stop the violence!.”
