Joe Igbokwe, the Special Adviser on Drainage and Water Resources to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos State, has criticised lawyers to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that after Kanu’s trial on Wednesday where the Federal High Court, Abuja, withdrew the newly-amended charges against the separatist leader, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, IPOB’s lead counsel, posted pictures of the detained activist’s legal team in ecstatic mood on his verified Facebook page.
This did not go down well with Anambra-born Igbokwe, who felt Kanu’s lawyers were being insensitive to the horror ongoing in the southeast, which has been linked to IPOB.
“South east is in a mess, people are being killed, businesses in ruins and we are here celebrating mediocrity and smiling away our collective shame. We will receive sense by force,” Igbokwe, a former spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, wrote on his known Facebook page.
