Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), has been granted access to the organisation’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
Ejiofor disclosed this in a Twitter post on Friday.
According to the lawyer, the request by the IPOB leader’s legal team was granted two days after it was made.
“Update, Thankfully Our effort is yielding the desired result, we have just received a communication approving Our visit to Our Client- Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Shall keep the World posted on the outcome, immediately after the meeting, later in the Day. God is with us,” the lawyer tweeted.
Kanu was initially arrested in late 2015 after calling for a separate state for Biafra, in South-East Nigeria.
He is facing an 11-count charge of treason, treasonable felony, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms, among others.
He jumped bail in 2017 and left the country, only to re-emerge in Israel and then in the United Kingdom.
He was re-arraigned before a Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday and ordered to be remanded in the custody of the DSS, while the case was adjourned till July 26 and July 27.
