AMENDED CHARGES: Nnamdi Kanu Begs Supporters to Pray, Fast
Lawyer to Nnamdi Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, revealed on Monday that his client has asked his supporters to embark on dry fasting and prayers as he will be arraigned on Thursday.
He also said his client team is ready for “legal fireworks” and “eminently prepared” to face the federal government’s team preparatory to his client’s arraignment.
He said this while reacting to the amended charges by the federal government against his client who is championing the cause of an independent Biafran nation.
In an update posted on his Facebook page, Ejiofor also said his client is in high spirit ahead of the arraignment.
Kanu himself had asked millions of his supporters to embark on a dry fast on Thursday.
The Nigerian government filed an amended seven counts against Nnamdi Kanu, according to reports.
Reacting to the development, Kanu’s lead counsel Ejiofor said, “I and my colleague, Alloy Ejimakor, had a very fruitful visitation to Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We discussed a wide range of matters, especially concerning Hearing in his case and appearance in court on 21st October, 2021. There will be more on this later.
“The coast is now clear for legal fireworks this Thursday, particularly now that we have been served with a purported “Amended Charge” in the Case. We are eminently prepared for Thursday’s outing, and you won’t be disappointed.
“Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is in good spirit, awaiting his auspicious outing on Thursday, the 21st Day of October, 2021. He commended those who are in the spirit with him while declaring that Chukwuokike Abiama has ordained this special Day for a victorious outing.
“He requested that the fasting, supplications, and prayers should continue, as he noted that they are strongly impacting positively.
“He further implored UmuChineke to be steadfast, and keep their eyes steadily on the ball and pray without ceasing, while believing very strongly that this present situation will pass too and it shall end in Praises.
“This THURSDAY is the D-Day, and your solidarity/support must be demonstrated within the confines of the law, as you have always shown.
“Onyendu specifically asked us to extend his undiluted love and confidence for Umuchineke.”
