Kanu taken back to DSS custody

Nnamdi Kanu

Kanu taken back to DSS custody. The leader of the separatist Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, was on Sunday returned to the custody of the Department of State Services after being released on Saturday to be attended by his personal physician.

On July 20, the Federal High Court in Abuja ordered the DSS to allow his access to his personal physicians, dismissing the DSS’s objection to the motion.

Kanu, according to IPOB, is suffering from an ear infection and requires surgery.

Counsel for the IPOB leader, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told our correspondent in a phone conversation on Sunday that Kanu, who has been in detention since 2021, had access to his personal physicians and had been taken back into custody.

Ejiofor said, “He has been attended to, and after preliminary examinations, he was taken back.”

The lawyer, however, declined further comments on his health conditions, among others.

Ejiofor had tweeted on Saturday that Kanu met with his personal doctors in a hospital in Abuja outside the facility of the DSS.

According to Ejiofor, who witnessed the medical checkup, everything was smooth and productive.

“We are pleased to inform you that Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu met with his choice personal physician yesterday in a hospital in Abuja, outside the facility of the State Security Service,” he said.

“I witnessed the consultation as part of the protocol.” The medical evaluation went smoothly and efficiently, and he will be moving on to the next stage soon.”
