At least 450 lawyers has declared interest to defend Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in court.
SAHARA NEWS gathered that the lawyers declared their interests in the case, to Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor and his counsel, Aloy Ejimakor.
It is not yet clear if Barrister Ejiofor and Ejimakor has accepted their proposal.
“We are still working hard to get fully involved in the case and ensure that Kanu is freed,” said a SAN.
Meanwhile, the British High Commission and a law firm in London, Bindmans, have sought the consent of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, to take up his case.
Aloy Ejimakor who disclosed this, told Vanguard that the development would open up a new chapter in the trial of Kanu, adding that the Nigerian government would be served with summons to bring him to the United Kingdom, where another case would be heard over the manner of his rendition to Nigeria.
