Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor and IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu.

Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, a lawyer of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been declared wanted by the Nigerian Police Force, Police statement reads.


This statement was released following the death of two police officers who were murdered during a clash at Ejiofor’s residence in Orafite, Anambra state, Jameela News news gathered.

This news platform learned that some police officers and alleged members of the IPOB group had a clash at Ejiofor’s residence on Monday, leaving at least two civilians dead as well as some police officers.


The Police Commissioner for Anambra, John Abang claimed in reaction to the killings that Ifeanyi Ejiofor is a member of the proscribed group before, declaring him wanted.

He said, “I’ll like Nigerians to know that Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, a member of the proscribed IPOB, has been declared wanted.

“I’ll seek the cooperation of law-abiding Nigerians, East, West, North, and South that wherever they find this individual, they should report to the nearest police station for possible arrest and prosecution based on the rules and laws of Nigeria.”


Obviously irritated by the pronouncement of the police, the spokesman for IPOB, Emma Powerful alleged that the Police invaded the home of Ifeanyi Ejiofor and attempted to assassinate him.

Powerful said in a statement, “The unprovoked Nigeria police and army invasion of the home of our lawyer, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, barely four days after the painful burial of his elder brother is proof that those running Nigeria have descended into the abyss of iniquity from which they may never recover.

“Not even during the darkest days of Abacha’s dictatorship did anyone witness such brazen intimidation of a legal counsel or the attempted assassination of a defence counsel in a high profile case.

“It is the golden rule of every legal system under the sun that defence counsel are not harassed, intimidated or killed but it seems nothing is sacrosanct in the present circumstance.

“We don’t expect the roundly docile and cowardly Nigeria Bar Association or their impotent and subdued National Judicial Council to rise up in condemnation of this contemptuous behaviour by Aso Rock in this latest attempt to kill Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor.

“This level of dictatorial impunity against the rule of law, judicial process and natural justice must not be condoned by any right-thinking person.”
