The embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is hale and hearty according to his lead counsel, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor.

Kanu according to Ejiofor in a statement made available to newsmen on Monday, thanked his supporters and declared that “we are winning”.

Ejiofor said Kanu made the statement when they visited him earlier following weeks of speculations and uncertainties. Kanu, Naija News understands asked the Biafra agitators not to relent in prayers and continue to be law-abiding.

“He is firm and stable, less the burden of solitary confinement and concomitant mental torture arising therefrom,” said the IPOB leader’s lead counsel.

He added: “Though the Detaining Authority is giving him medical attention, he still requires advanced medical care, which formed a substantial part of the relief in our application before the Court.

“He specifically requested that we should extend his heartfelt compliment to Millions of his supporters worldwide and all foreign Governments and institutions who are relentlessly following up. Media houses are indeed not left out of this classification.

“We are winning but your prayers are doing wonders, don’t relent, as you continue to remain law-abiding,” he said.

Ejiofor promised to give frequent updates, “now that the visit will be more regular than before.”

Recall that Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, since he was rearrested and repatriated from an undisclosed African country.
