Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has likened the agitator to the Biblical rock of Gibraltar.
Ejimakor said Kanu remained strong despite being locked up by the Department of State Services, DSS.
He said Kanu is happy with the support from followers and the United Nations, UN.
Ejimakor disclosed this after a routine meeting of IPOB’s legal team with Kanu at the DSS headquarters in Abuja.
In a tweet, Ejimakor wrote: “UPDATE: My visitation with Onyendu #MNK just concluded. Like the rock of Gibraltar, MNK remains strong.
“He derives quantum comfort from the support of the legions that believe in his cause & the vindication brought by the Umuahia judgment & UN directives. He salutes the faithful.”
Kanu has been in DSS detention since 2011.
In June 2021, the IPOB leader was arrested in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria.
