Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu on Monday received a family member for the first time since he was detained by the Department of State Services (DSS).
His brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, paid him a visit according to the IPOB leader’s Lead Counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
In a statement posted on his Facebook wall on Monday evening, Ejiofor, who was also on the visit, said his client was in strong spirits.
Ejiofor, who shared a photo with Prince Kanu, said the IPOB leader’s brother would reveal more details of the visit.
The post reads: “We just concluded today’s routine visit on a very sound note. What made today’s visit unique is that today marks it the first Day Our Client -Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is setting his eyes on his sibling.
“In my company during the Family’s maiden visit to Our Client is Prince Emmanuel Kanu (Fine Boy), the Representative of Our Client’s family.
“Our Client- Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is very strong in spirit.
You will hear the rest from Prince Emmanuel Kanu.
“Our Client- Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was visibly shocked by the unwarranted embarrassment, insults and criticism meted out to his Lawyers by those who should know better. Discipline he emphasised is the watchword, which is apparently lacking today.
“If at this point in time people who deliberately choose to be mischief makers, are throwing accusations and insults on his Solicitors, he wonders when they will learn.
