The Department of State Services (DSS) has finally released Ukamaka Ejezie , a.k.a. Mama Biafra from Detention.
Mama Biafra , is said to be the foster mother of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The DSS released Mama Biafra on Sunday after several weeks in detention.
The leader of Kanu’s legal team , Ifeanyi Ejiofor, confirmed her release in a short statement obtained by PM News.
He said’’Iam very delighted to inform you all that Mrs Ukamaka Ejezie (mama Biafra) has regained her freedom. She is now out of the DSS Dungeon. Thank thee Chukwuokike Abiama for this huge success.’’
‘’We are not relenting , every prisoner of conscience , including our indefatigable client, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will soon regain their freedom.’’
‘’We in the legal team and are doing everything legally permissible to make it happen ; we are not resting on our oars at all, be assured. Forward ever and backward never! We move’’.
Mama Biafra, a Septuagenarian , was arrested during Kanu last court appearance in Abuja on May 18.
Reliable source indicates that the woman has been acting as Kanu’s mother since his parents died in 2020.
‘’I saw her at the DSS detention cell after her clothes were washed and spread on the wall. I demanded that she be released , because she committed no crime.
She is an old woman and since my mother died, I have taken her as my mother. The DSS should release her ,’’ Kanu had demanded.
