Worried by the deteriorating health of its incarcerated leader and Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, in the cell of the Department of State Service, DSS, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has raised an alarm, accusing the DSS of denying him medical treatment several times, claiming that attempts by his doctors to attend to him have been rebuffed by the DSS.
POB potesters grounding Onitsha, the commercial city of Anambra State, South-east Nigeria, during their 1 Million March, to call for the immediate release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu. Kanu was arrested by the Department of State Services, DSS, on his way into Nigeria from UK
Addressing newsmen, yesterday, in Nnewi, IPOB Media and Publicity Officer, Mr. Emma Powerful alleged that the Federal Government through the DSS has perfected plans to systematically kill Kanu in the DSS cell by denying him doctors’ attention and subjecting him to torture on daily basis.
“Information from a reliable DSS source revealed that the Federal Government is also planning to transfer Mr. Kanu to a particular cell in the country where members of Boko Haram are detained, and it is their plan to kill him there,” he said
He said that IPOB had written the United Nations, the African Union, AU, United States of America, Russia, France, Israel, Britain and Amnesty International, including other relevant world bodies and organizations about the life threatening treatment being given to Kanu by the Federal Government through the DSS operatives.
IPOB wondered when the Nigerian government stopped granting detainees and suspects medical attention especially for somebody that had been granted bail by two courts of competent jurisdiction in the country but the government decided to continue incarcerating him.
