Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has alleged a “serious threat” to his life after a combined team of policemen and soldiers invaded his home.

The lawyer’s home is located in Oraifite, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Ejiofor raised the alarm in two tweets that were posted in quick succession in the wee hours of Sunday.

“Alert: Joint team of the police and Army are presently in my house shooting sporadically on sight, to arrest me. As a lawyer I hve committed no offence known to law. My life is under serious threat . People are being killed and i don’t know what will happen to me next,” he wrote at 3:54 am.

“Pray for me and my entire household. You may not hear from me again till further notice,” he added in another tweet posted at 3:58 am.

In a statement, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful said that Ejiofor’s home was invaded around 2:15 pm.

He said that incident mirrored a similar one on December 2, 2019.

“This is 2.30 am time, a combined team of Police and Army currently surrounded Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor’s country home, is it an offence for someone to defend IPOB as its lawyer. Barrister Ejiofor is doing his job as a lawyer, where in the world is a legal practitioner would be harassing because he represents an organization as their lawyer.

“The Nigerian Army invaded and burnt his house on 2nd December 20 19 and killed more than 10 people. Since then they are still trailing and harassing him. The whole world must hear this because the Nigerian government must get what they are looking for from IPOB.

“Barrister Ejiofor’s house is been invaded by Fulani Jihadist soldiers now and they want to eliminate him, the world must hear the evil this country and her security agencies are committing. This is becoming their new normal, nobody should blame IPOB, for the consequences of what will follow the possible be a limitation of our lawyer, Ejiofor by Nigerian armed forces. A world is enough for the wise. South-East has not come out of the consequences of Ikonso’s murder by Nigeria security agents.

“We call on South-East Governors to call the Nigerian armed forces operating in their States to order now because they will be the ones to bear the consequences of the ongoing killings, intimidation and harassment of South-East youths and professionals discharging their legitimate duties,” IPOB’s statement read in part.
