Nnamdi Kanu's American Lawyer, Bruce Fein Asks Ejiofor To Immediately Withdraw From IPOB Leader's Legal Team

The American legal practitioner of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Bruce Fein, has urged Ifeanyi Ejiofor, a member of Kanu’s legal team, to refrain from representing the agitator with immediate effect, Kossyderrickent reports. (Read More Here).

In the letter, obtained by IgbereTV, the lawyer revealed that Ejiofor was not eligible to defend Kanu against the Nigerian Government’s amended charges in the court, making reference to a pending lawsuit raised by a businessman against Ejiofor over an alleged fraud of N5.6 million.

The lawyer revealed that Ejiofor had a case to clear and that the allegations were not concocted by the Nigerian government to preempt his representation of Nnamdi Kanu.The American lawyer, therefore, advised Ejiofor to withdraw from Kanu’s legal team immediately.


See details of the letter below,

“How can you be blind to what all the world can see and understand? “According to the public record, you have a blatant conflict of interest in representing Nnamdi Kanu to defend against the Federal Government of Nigeria’s amended charges in the Federal High Court of Nigeria, Abuja Judicial Division Holden in Abuja, Charge No: FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015 in violation of Rule 10 of the Nigerian Rules of Professional Conduct. “The public record shows you have a conflicting interest to sabotage Nnamdi Kanu’s defense in exchange for leniency or a pardon in the pending fraud prosecution against you in FRN v. IFEANYI EJIOFOR & 2 ORS, CHARGE NO. CR/950/2020, Court No. 3, FCT High Court, Maitama, before Honourable Justice M.E. Anenih. The next hearing in your prosecution is scheduled for March 30, 2022. “The public record establishes that the fraud charges were not concocted by the FGN to preempt your representation of Nnamdi Kanu. The record shows the charges were triggered by a complaint from a private businessman with no political or other ulterior motive to defame or handicap you: Okpala Comas Ikechukwu. “Among other things, he stated in a complaint to the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission that you defrauded him of N5,600,000.00 by conspiring to represent forged land or title documents as authentic.
“Nothing in the public domain demonstrates that you shared your conflict of interest with Nnamdi Kanu and received his knowing and voluntary written consent to represent him notwithstanding the conflict. “You are saddled with a professional and personal duty to recuse yourself immediately from further representation of Nnamdi Kanu and to apologize for your neglect to do so earlier.
“As the Bible preaches (Matthew 6: 24): ‘No one can serve two masters.’ I expect you to do the right thing.”
