The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has again called on the Federal Government to release its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu, over his worsening health conditions.
IPOB alleged that Kanu is suffering from physical fatigue from the torture unleashed on him since the time of his abduction in 2021.
Aloy Ejimakor, one of the lawyers to the leader of the detained Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu has raised the alarm over his client’s health.
Ejimakor claimed that Kanu bleeds from his nose ostensibly due to the presence of a detainee diagnosed with tuberculosis in the same block with him (IPOB leader).
The detainee, according to the lawyer, was transferred to Kanu’s cell block on Sunday by the Department of State Services (DSS).
There were contained in a post on his Twitter handle.
“The information we received yesterday, Thursday, 13th of April 2023, from one of our lawyers who visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is distressing.
“According to the report, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is physically exhausted and vomiting due to the torturous DSS solitary confinement.”
It said, “We should recall that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has a medical condition that DSS has not been able to treat, yet they have refused him access to his personal doctors and specialists.
“The physical exhaustion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is connected to his untreated medical condition and complications emanating from injuries he sustained from torture, lack of proper nutrition, and lack of medication in solitary confinement for almost two years.”
“We are demanding his immediate and unconditional release to attend to his failing health,” IPOB added.
Ejimakor, one of his lawyers called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order the DSS to release of his client in compliance with a court order.
