A faction of the pan Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, led by Chidi Ibeh has slammed the legal team constituted by the George Obiozor led faction to monitor the trial of the embattled leader of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The group in a statement signed and made available to Lanre News by its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, described the development as a piece of affirmative evidence to infiltrate the legal team of Nnamdi Kanu for sinister motives.
The statement reads; “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide had described the recent response of Mr Abubarkar Malami Attorney General of Federation and Minister for Justice to the illegal step-up of the Igbo Elder’s legal team for Nnamdi Kanu after the secret meeting between the representatives of Igbo Elders and Presidency yesterday, was the affirmative evidence to our earlier warnings about the hastily but crafty package of moles to infiltrate the legal team of Nnamdi Kanu for sinister motives, as its obvious that there is synergy between the two to ensure that Nnamdi Kanu gets unfair trial and penalty.

“Ohanaeze Constitution does not permit anyone to set up any legal team without the authorization of Imeobi members and the approval of the General Assembly as stipulated in articles 20 and 21, as the highest decision making organs of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the last meeting of the Imeobi was on 31st December 2020, as General Assembly meetings had never met since 4 years ago,”
“Igbos are amazed at how some desperate Igbo Elders could descend so low that, they are being used as political jobbers and shenanigans against Nnamdi Kanu without constitutional approval of Imeobi and General Assembly of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
“We are pressurized by Imeobi members to disassociate Ohanaeze Ndigbo from any legal team, as it is illegal, unconstitutional, null and void.
“The office of the Attorney General of the Federation should know that based on the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Constitution, it’s the fundamental liberty of Nnamdi Kanu to choose his legal team, as any attempt to drag Igbo leadership to give ethnic back up to justify the premeditated penalty for Nnamdi Kanu is dead on arrival”.
