Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, head of the legal team for the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, on Sunday, described a former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, as a drowning man desperately in search of relevance from the Federal Government and relief from prosecution on corruption charges.

Ejiofor, in a statement sent to one of our correspondents, was reacting to an interview granted the Sunday PUNCH by Kalu, where he claimed that Kanu was not arrested by the military and that the IPOB leader had since escaped to the United Kingdom through Malaysia.



Kalu, in the interview, stated that Kanu had left the country for the UK on his own.

The ex-governor had said, “Kanu was not taken away by the military. Kanu went to Malaysia from where he travelled to the United Kingdom.

“Nnamdi Kanu is in London right now as we speak. He was not arrested by anybody. He left the country on his own.
