Ejiofor makes serious clarification about the new SAN

Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lead counsel to Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has clarified the matters arising from the inclusion of Chief Chukwuma Machukwu Ume into the legal team.

Ejiofor recognized the inclusion of Chief Chukwuma joining the IPOB legal team.

He also made it clear that Chief Chukwuma is only added to the legal team prosecuting the PROSCRIPTION OF IPOB at the appeal court.

Recall that in 2015 IPOB was declared a terrorist organisation by the Nigerian government.

The legal team led by Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor appealed the case at the Appeal Court.

This legal team that is pursuing the de-proscription of IPOB at the Abuja Appeal court is the team that Chief Chukwuma Machukwu Ume was asked to join.

In further clarification, Ejiofor said that no other SAN has joined the team defending Nnamdi Kanu at the federal high court.

Ejiofor said that Nnamdi Kanu is fine with the current structure of the team defending him at the federal high court Abuja.

As a result, there won’t be any need for a new SAN or lawyer to join.

What is important to note is that Chief Chukwuma Machukwu Ume was instructed to join the team fighting for the de-proscription of IPOB and not the team defending Nnamdi Kanu at the federal high court Abuja.
