The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has raised the alarm about the systematic killing of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu in the detention of the Department of State Service (DSS) in Abuja.
The group disclosed on Saturday that Kanu has heart problems and some mineral deficiencies which require medical specialists’ attention, adding that the Nigeria Government has refused to release him as the courts had ordered.
In a statement issued by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group also accused the Government of preventing their ailing leader from accessing his personal physicians.
“Instead, they have resulted in patronizing roadside pharmacies for his drug, which we see as a systematic and gradual diminishing and killing of his life and final elimination method.”
The statement reads: “The Nigerian government has deliberately planned to eliminate Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu, who is illegally detained in DSS solitary confinement.”
The group disclosed that Kanu is currently battling heart problems and some mineral deficiencies which require medical specialists’ attention, adding that the Federal Government has refused to release him contrary to the court order.
“A few days ago, IPOB legal team members and a brother of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu visited him in the DSS custody where he informed them that the DSS agents have not given him his prescription drugs for nine days and more. Moreso, DSS hasn’t given him food for some days, claiming that they don’t have money for his food and drugs. How preposterous!
