It is now Court No. 24, instead of Court No. 3 with Justice Bature as the new judge in charge of the case.

Ejiofor has been in the eye of the storm after he was allegedly indicted in a serious case of fraud, forgery, criminal breach of trust by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).

The alleged fraud case has warranted concerned individuals to call for his resignation from Nnamdi Kanu’s legal team.

Emeka Ugwuonye, Harvard trained attorney and founder of Due Process Advocates (DPA), including IPOB’s American lawyer, Bruce Fein were among the vocal voices that asked Ejiofor to resign from his position.

According to them, the fraud case hanging on his neck is disturbing and could make things very difficult for Nnamdi Kanu who is currently facing terrorism charges.
