Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, legal counsel to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has written a letter to the British government alleging the Nigerian Security agents want to end his life.
Ejiofor’s letter is coming barely a week after security operatives stormed his ancestral home in Oraifite, Ekwusigo local government area, Anambra state. Ejiofor’s personal assistant, Samuel Okoro alias Biggy was shot dead by the operatives.
Okoro’s corpse was then put in Ejiofor’s Toyota vehicle and burnt to ashes. His letter read in part;
“It is even more worrisome since till date, there has been no statement from any of the said security agencies, taking responsibility for the murderous invasion and/or operation, and/or given any explanations for same.
“It is therefore clear from the foregoing, that our client’s life is no longer safe, as there is an obvious state-sponsored conspiracy to eliminate our client at all cost and by any means.”
“We call on the British Government to prevail on the Federal Government of Nigeria to set up an independent investigative panel to investigate the recent incident that occurred at our client’s ancestral home in Oraifite, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State, on the 6th day of June 2021, and the first invasion that occurred on the 2nd day of December 2019.”
“We also call on the British Government, to prevail on the Federal Government of Nigeria and her security agents to desist from further attempts on our client’s life.”
“We further call on the British Government to intervene in the circumstance and afford our client all necessary protection available.”
“We finally crave the indulgence of the British Government for a proactive oversight and intervention in the light of this obvious travesty of justice and to prevail on the Nigerian Government to desist from a further attempt on our client’s life.”
