Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the Lead Counsel to the head of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has guaranteed that the Department of State Services (DSS) denied the British Consul and Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife admittance to his customer on Thursday.
He made these cases in an assertion shipped off DAILY POST.
According to Ejiofor, the court had on October 21, “extended the quantity of people that could visit Our Client on any of the assigned days planned for his routine visit.”
He likewise noticed that Kanu has been approved to have three people of his decision to visit him, clarifying that the rundown was presently not elite to legal advisors and family members.
The explanation read: “In accordance with this Order of Court, we sent the rundown of names booked to visit Our Client on Monday, 25th October, 2021, which included Attorney Bruce Fein – our Client’s International Attorney and Legal Representative in the United States of America.
“Attorney Fein showed up Nigeria from the United States of America to observe the Court procedures of the 21st Day of October, 2021, and furthermore use the chance of the visit to interface with his Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“Unknown to us, an impolite shock anticipated us at the DSS. Upon landing in the DSS Headquarters on Monday, 25th October, 2021, for the booked routine visit, the confining authority didn’t stop at keeping us hanging tight for well more than two hours, yet from there on explicitly let us know that no outsider, including Bruce Fein would be permitted to visit Our Client, and accordingly, he would pass on the visit.
“The eminent International Constitutional Human Rights Lawyer was disillusioned with the Authority concerned, yet was stunned at the audacious way wherein the Nigerian Court Orders are spurned without any potential repercussions by those whose essential command is to ensure and protect these Laws and keep up with Order.
“Attorney Bruce Fein, subsequently left the premises of the DSS apparently broken. Evidently, he has sufficiently accumulated to take care of the International Community upon his re-visitation of the United States.
“Today was the turn of the British Consul to encounter what the cultivated society might allude to as the tallness of anomaly in the System. The blameless lady who flew right from Lagos on this unique conciliatory commitment, was denied admittance to Our Client, and told that she isn’t invited for the visit since she’s a foreigner.
“His Excellency, Dr. CHUKWUEMEKA EZEIFE who was denied admittance to the Court room at the last Court sitting was likewise denied admittance to our Client today without offering any reason(s). Stature of exemption indeed!
“It is imperative to bring up here that the Order of Court as to the quantity of people and class of people permitted to visit our Client, NEVER RESTRICTED THEM TO NIGERIANS ONLY.
“It is all the more so this explanation was made by His Lordship, following our particular grievance to the Court that Attorney Bruce Fein was not just denied admittance to our Client on two events at the DSS Headquarters, yet was not permitted inside the court on 21st October, 2021.
“If His Lordship’s goal was to confine outsiders from visiting our Client, the Court would have essentially made it understood while reacting to our application for clarification.
“Though we have speedily documented one more application for the exchange of Our Client to the remedial focus predicated on totally new arrangement of realities, it is presently completely clear to the World that if the DSS is permitted to stay the overseer of our Client, there will absolutely be net disavowal of reasonable hearing and reasonable preliminary in these proceedings.
“We will similarly be starting disdain procedures against the Head of the DSS for this net infringement of Court Order. Request of the Court should be obeyed paying little mind to the situation with the person(s) involved or the Agency influenced by the Order.
“Even however the DSS has a background marked by spurning Court Orders without risk of punishment, we will seek after for the Court to step in, for this situation and ensure the sacredness of its Order(s). Enough is enough!”
Ejiofor further spoke to Kanu’s supporters to “resist the urge to panic as we investigate all lawful cures accessible to our Client in the situation of this breach.”
