The legal team of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has denied reports that the Biafra agitator was planning to overhaul his legal team.
Reports had it that Kanu met with his Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor and was working on changing his legal team.
As a prelude to the disbanding of his legal team, Kanu was reported to have held a meeting with Ejimakor, and instructed him to ask the team to return his case file to him without further delay.

The IPOB leader is upset over what he considers the inability of the legal team to secure his freedom despite the judgment of the Appeal Court, which freed him last year.
However, Ejimakor distanced himself from the reports, stressing that he never met Kanu over the issue of overhauling his legal team.
In a chat with Applesbite, Ejimakor described the reports as false.
He said: “False story. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu never discussed such with me last Monday. Our discussions were not even close to what was reported here.
“I suspect that someone, a desperate and deranged person, is trying to pit the legal team against me or infuse disarray into the legal team.
“There have been similar false stories like this in the recent past.”
