Release Nnamdi Kanu, DSS can’t manage his health – IPOB leader’s lawyer insists

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Nnamdi Kanu’s attorney and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has once again demanded the unconditional release of his client.

According to Ejiofor, the secret police’s inability to adequately handle Kanu’s medical concerns is what prompted the call.

After paying Kanu a normal visit on Monday when he was being held by the Department of State Services, the attorney announced this in a statement.

Ejiofor said that the separatist group leader required seven dosages, but DSS was only able to get two of them before he ran out of them on Saturday.

He said, “I spent quality time with Kanu today, during which time he confirmed to me that the DSS in a feeble attempt at improvisation, in order to cure a serious health condition such as the one confronting Onyendu, only succeeded in procuring two doses, out of the full dosage of seven bottles of the prescribed medications. This was in response to the public outcry and wide condemnation that followed the lack of proper medical attention in addressing his deteriorating health condition.

The two dosages were used up on September 24, 2022, a Saturday. Due to the current circumstances, Kanu was only given a little amount of the prescribed medication, which was just a drop in the ocean and did not have the anticipated results.

There is no longer any question that the DSS has exhausted all therapeutic alternatives for treating Kanu’s life-threatening illness. Therefore, we fervently ask for Kanu’s unconditional release so that we may get the medical care we need.

Otherwise, we should be permitted to provide the DSS the money they need to buy all of Kanu’s prescription drugs, or we may buy them ourselves to guarantee that Kanu leaves the DSS facility in excellent health when he shortly regains his freedom.
