Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor,  head of the legal team of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, on Sunday described an ex-Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, as a drowning man desperately in search of relevance from the Federal Government and relief from prosecution on corruption charges.

Ejiofor, in a statement ,was reacting to an interview granted Sunday PUNCH by Kalu alleging that Kanu was not arrested by the military and has since traveled to the United Kingdom.

Replying Kalu on Sunday, Kanu’s lawyer said the former governor had turned himself to the spokesperson for the Federal Government and the military as part his strategy to get freed from his (Kalu’s) ongoing trial on corruption charges.
Ejiofor stated, “Orji Uzof Kalu is a drowning man,  looking for where to perch.”
