- Nnamdi Kanu's lawyer has reacted to the statement credited to the former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor-Kalu.. 

- Ifeanyi Ejiofor said the former governor is a drowning man..

- He also advised the former governor to apply to join as a party between the IPOB leader and the chief of army staff in court...

A lawyer to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has reacted to the statement credited to a former governor of Abia state Orji Uzor-Kalu on the whereabouts of his client. 

Ifeanyi Ejiofor in a statement sent to NAIJ.com described the former governor as "a drowning man looking for where to perch.

He also said Uzor-Kalu is desperately searching for temporary freedom.

Accusing the former governor of effort that he could end Kanu's agitation, Ejiofor asked the former governor to make it clearly know if he was in the company of the soldiers during the invasion of his client's residence. 

Ejiofro said: "Orji Uzor-Kalu is a drowning man, looking for where to perch. 

He has since outlived his usefulness in Igbo Land. What do you expect from a Man who is enjoying a temporary freedom?. 

Struggling to get his head out of grievous corruption charge hanging on his neck. It's not unlikely that he may spend the rest of his life in prison, sooner than expected.

He saw Nnamdi Kanu's travail as opportunity to seek relevance from the prosecuting authority. 

At sometime, he attempted deceiving the state into believing that he has the magic wand to Nnamdi Kanu's peaceful agitation.

Now, he has turned into government/military spokesperson. Please ask that confuse Man, if he was in the company of the rampaging soldiers at the time of their murderous invasion of my client's home?

He is seeking for possible relevance where none exist, opportunity to divert attention.

May be he has forgotten he is no longer the governor of Abia state. I advise the discerning mind to kindly disregard his tantrums as that coming from a drowning man. 

The military should produce my client wherever they kept him. The matter is now in court, let's meet in court. Orji Uzor-Kalu, can as well be apply to be joined as a party in the suit. Let his position be on oath," Kanu's lawyer concluded.

The former governor in a recent interview with Punch debunked claims that the IPOB leader is missing. 

Uzor-Kalu said the IPOB leader was not taken away or killed by the Nigerian military during the raid in his father's residence in Afara Ibeku, Umuahia in Abia state. 

He said one of Kanu's relative had earlier told him that the IPOB leader left Nigeria to London through Malaysia following the tension between the group members and the military. 

He also said although the Biafra agitation is a never ending cause, the people of the southeast region mainly of Igbo extraction should strive towards producing a president of Nigeria instead of the agitation for a sovereign state of Biafra.

Uzor-Kalu during the visit discussed the need and various things that should be done to facilitate the release of IPOB leader. 

The former governor also visited the parents of the IPOB leader in home in Afara Ukwu, Umuahia His Excellency Eze Israel Kanu and his wife Ugoeze Sally Kanu.
