Nnamdi Kanu’s Medical Condition Deteriorating – Lawyer Reveals


In spite of the pronouncement by Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja, the Department of State Services has not allowed the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, to change his clothes, while he is also facing starvation, head of his legal team and human rights activist, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has said.

Ejiofor disclosed this in a statement issued after the routine visit to the DSS Headquarters in Abuja on Thursday.

He recalled that at the last sitting on April 8 2022, the issue was raised and the judge ordered that Kanu’s clothes should be taken along by the DSS after the proceedings, and should be promptly handed over to him upon their return to the DSS facility.

He said, “Unfortunately, it is utterly disheartening to note that up until the time of our visit today, Kanu has not been handed those clothes for a change.

“Despite clear and unequivocal directive from His Lordship to the DSS’ lawyer to ensure that the court order is obeyed, the DSS in their usual style roundly ignored and treated it with utmost disdain, as they are yet to comply with this recurrent court order, requiring Kanu’s change of clothing.

“We were also, reliably informed by Kanu that his meals are no longer served regularly. Kanu barely eats once in a day, and this situation is not helping his deteriorating medical condition.”
