The family as well as a lawyer to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, have raised fresh concerns over his safety, claiming that they have twice, been denied access to him.
Kanu’s younger brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, told newsmen that he was at the Abuja headquarters of the Department of State Services, DSS where the IPOB Leader is currently detained but was not allowed to see him.
Prince who said he was also at the DSS headquarters on Thursday last week to see his brother as directed by the Court but denied access to him, expressed worry over the reason behind the action of DSS.
He said he was no longer convinced that his brother was in good shape, hence, the secret police does not want to grant the family access to him.
Similarly, Kanu’s Special Counsel, Mr Aloy Ejimakor, who took to his Twitter handle, demanded explanations for the action of the DSS which he said was suspicious.
During Kanu’s last court appearance on Wednesday, February 16, his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, had informed the presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako that DSS had also not allowed Kanu change of clothes despite to his earlier order.
But DSS claimed that the clothes brought to him by the family had an insignia that should not be tolerated
