Nnamdi Kanu dismisses his legal counsel.


Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has dismissed his legal team following his unsuccessful attempt to secure release from ongoing detention. According to a source, this decision was formally communicated to the legal team, led by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and a prominent legal figure in Nigeria.

The source explained, “Shortly after the Supreme Court ruling, Nnamdi Ejimakor and Nnameka Ejiofor met with our leader, and he asked them to formally terminate the legal contract and provide it to the lead counsel. They have already done that, and the Senior Advocate of Nigeria has received the letter terminating the contract.”

In place of the former legal team leader, Nnamdi Kanu has reportedly approached another legal luminary from Cross River State to handle his legal matters. Although discussions have taken place, it remains uncertain whether the former chief legal officer for Nigeria will accept the brief.

The decision to disband the legal team reportedly stems from Kanu’s dissatisfaction with their efforts to challenge his case and secure his release. He has allegedly lost faith in the legal team’s ability to present a strong case, including a failed attempt to transfer him from the Department of State Services cell to the Kuje Correctional Service for more freedom.

Additionally, Kanu is said to be displeased with his medical team, which he believes has not produced a compelling medical report to facilitate the transfer of his treatment from the DSS hospital to his chosen private doctors outside Nigeria.
