Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the counsel to the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu has warned against confusion among Biafran agitators.
He alleged that the confusion among some IPOB members was caused because of the presence of some “marauder” in IPOB, who are not loyalists of Nnamdi Kanu.
The lawyer, however, assured IPOB supporters that the legal team would not be distracted.
The PUNCH had reported that there was confusion during the recent sit-at-home ordered by the IPOB.
Contrary to an earlier statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, that its sit-at-home directive to the people of South East and South-South states was sacrosanct, another statement by the IPOB leader’s younger brother, Kanunta Kanu, said the planned sit-at-home order had been suspended.
Later, Ejiofor issued a statement confirming that Kanu approved the suspension of the sit-at-home.
In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the lawyer said, “If by now the hardcore believers in our strength of character, are still unaware of the fact that millions of Naira have been deployed to boost the infiltrators’ exploits in their suicide mission, both online and offline,then you have to be properly guided.
“You may not realize that men are really at work here. The mission is simple, destroy them, create more confusion for them, do it under the pretense that you are part of them, so that the gullible among them can fall for the tricks.
“Please, stop indulging them or clapping them because they are on a special mission. You can easily identify these marauders because by their fruit you shall know them.
“But by virtue of my position as the Lead Counsel to Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, I can easily separate the wheat from the chaff. “Maka na Agadi nwanyi adighi aka nka na egwu omalu agba”.
“They did it in 2015/2016, but I surmounted them single-handedly, I am very familiar with the game, and style of their dancing steps but their evil plans are already dead on arrival, they can’t go far.
“It is to be noted, therefore, that in this critical moment, peace and discipline should be the ultimate guide. What we crave is your prayers only.
“Be assured that we in the legal team cannot be distracted at all because we don’t share the same evil mission with these infiltrators.
“Our mission is simple, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s freedom within the shortest possible time. Thankfully, the Almighty Chukwuokike Abiama is speedily working it out, and it shall all end in praises.
