Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Alloy Ejimakor, has cried out over alleged threats to his life by members of the group.
Ejimakor is being accused by some members of IPOB of being the mastermind of the suspension of the sit-at-home order declared by IPOB in the South-East.
In a post on his Twitter handle on Monday, Ejimakor expressed worries that members of the group he had “been defending for years” now wants him dead.
He explained that Kanu, currently in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja, did not give the order for the sit-at-home order. According to him, the order had already been delivered by others days before he visited Kanu on 9th August.
He said, “I can no longer keep quiet because I’m receiving DEATH THREATS from people I’ve been defending for years.
“Hear this: Onyendu (Kanu) DID NOT pass the SIT-AT-HOME message through me. The message was already delivered by others days before I visited him on 9th August. Check social media.
“I don’t understand why they want me dead over something I know nothing about.
“I defended these same people for many years… sometimes free of charge. What did I do wrong?”
