The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has asked the Federal Government to release Nnamdi Kanu over ill health.
According to THE PUNCH, the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra has raised the alarm on the health condition of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who has been in DSS detention since 2021.
The group demanded his unconditional release by the Federal Government based on a court order, so he could get proper medical treatment.
The group stated in a Saturday statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, “The information we received on Thursday from one of our lawyers who visited Kanu is distressing. According to the report, Kanu is physically exhausted and vomiting due to the torturous DSS solitary confinement.
“We should recall that 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 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. As it is today, he is being detained illegally.”
The group warned that nothing should happen to Kanu.
