The Court-Ordered routine visit to our indefatigable Client - Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was conducted today, exclusively by the legal team. The visit afforded us the opportunity to individually brief Onyendu on our respective undertakings.
Onyendu expressed deep satisfaction with the level of progress so far recorded in all pending matters in various courts. Details of strategic legal measures being adopted to expedite the proceedings directly affecting Onyendu, in order to secure his speedy and unconditional release remain private.
We, hereby confirm to Onyendu’s numerous followers, supporters and fans that he is safe, by the Grace and Protection of the Almighty Chukwuokike Abiama.
This visit also afforded us the opportunity to express our fears on the safety of residents in Abuja and its environs, following the prevailing national security breaches in the F.C.T.
It is no longer news that known terrorists freely struck without any form of resistance from security personnel, executed a well planned successful "prison-break" of the highly secured and heavily guarded Kuje Correctional Facility, and escaped unscathed!
This most recent unfortunate incident is still troubling the residents of the F.C.T. particularly, we lawyers, who are at the forefront of this case.
With the infiltration of hardened criminals released on account of this "prison-break", into our society, particularly the F.C.T., we are now to be sleeping with one eye open. However, Onyendu encouraged us not to despair nor entertain any fear, as ChukwuOkike Abiama shall continue to intercede for us.
Even though we have not lost faith in the power of the Almighty Man in Battle to protect His own, and Onyendu in particular, these concerns have been noted by the relevant authorities, whose attention we have drawn following the unfortunate incident.
Onyendu continues to enjoin all his followers, supporters and all Ezigbo UmuChineke to remain peaceful and law abiding as always.
Also, Onyendu thanked all Ezigbo UmuChineke for your prayers and particularly, those who expressed concerns for his safety on the aftermath of yesterday’s unfortunate terrorist attack.
Onyendu specifically requested, that you all should be assured that Chukwuokike Abiama will never forsake him, while tenaciously holding onto his avowed conviction that it shall surely end in Praises. His victory is certain, and there is no going back. "Who has spoken and it came to pass unless the Lord has commanded it?"
On a concluding note, Onyendu urged you all to continue to keep your eyes focused on the ball, while remaining law abiding, as you have always been.
Forward ever and backward never until victory is assured. It is still "a luta continua; vitória é certa".
Thank you all, Ezigbo UmuChineke and remain hugely blessed.
