Today, at Federal High Court Awka in Anambra State were Team of Lawyers representing Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Lawyer to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) in a case filed against the Nigeria Police, Nigeria Army, the DSS and the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Recall that on 2nd day of December 2019, the Nigeria Police Force, DSS, the Army and other Security Agencies invaded the home of Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor during the funeral rites of his brother. In this unprovoked attack, four lives were lost, the home of Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor was completely burned down. The neighbourhood was not spared, over 20 shops containing goods worth millions were also burned down. Animals were set ablaze and so many people sustained injuries from gunshots.

It was a very huge carnage that left the entire Community mourning. Bodies of two of the four men killed were taken away by the Police and set ablaze. The families of these young men are still expecting the bodies of their loved ones for formal burial.

Today, the team of Lawyers to Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor led by Barr Nnaemeka Ejiofor, were in court to demand enforcement of fundamental Rights of Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Rights to Properties, to Life, and Rights to fair hearing in all its ramifications.

The IPOB Media Personnel Mazi Tony Asomba who was present in Court, had a brief interview with the team of Lawyers. According to him, in the words of Barr Nnaemeka Ejiofor,

"We are here to challenge Impunity, Absurdity and total disregard to Rule of Law as perpetrated by the Nigeria Police, the DSS, Nigeria Army, Federal Government of Nigeria and other Security Agencies who invaded the home of our Client on the 2nd of December 2019, killing four young men, burned down houses and environments, burned animals, shops and took away two bodies of the four young men they killed. This for us is barbaric, demonic and unconstitutional to say the least"

The case was adjourned to 21st October 2020. For the Lawyers the adjournment of the case was not done in bad fate. They are very optimistic that justice will be granted eventually.

We shall keep you updated on the 21st of October.
