The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has raised the alarm over the state of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS). IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, alleged that Nnamdi Kanu may have been killed in DSS custody. Insisting that may be the reason they refused to bring him to court.
Emma Powerful stated that the failure of the DSS to produce their leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in court yesterday points to the fact that he may be dead in their custody. In a statement, Emma Powerful lamented that DSS has refused Nnamdi Kanu access to his doctors, despite his deteriorating health issue.
According to the words of Emma Powerful; “We are no longer comfortable with this development. We have enough grounds to suspect foul play. With the failure of DSS to produce our leader in court today without any cogent reason and coupled with the torture meted out on him since his abduction in Kenya, we are worried about the safety of our leader.
“The failure of DSS to produce our leader in court today confirms our fear over the uncertainty concerning his health. Considering his deteriorating health condition since he was kidnapped and the refusal of DSS to grant him access to his personal physicians, it is possible that our leader may have been killed,” he stated.
Nnamdi Kanu has been under DSS protective custody since he was re-arrested and detained a few weeks ago. Upon returning to Nigeria from Kenya, Justice Binta Nyako, chief judge of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had ordered him to be reprimanded in DSS custody until yesterday, Monday, 26th July 2021 for resumption of his trial. However, DSS failed to produce the IPOB leader in court. They claimed that the reason they can’t produce Nnamdi Kanu in court is because of logistics.
But Nnamdi Kanu lawyer, Barr. Aloy Ejimakor had claimed that lack of evidence could have prevented the Nigerian government and the DSS from presenting Nnamdi Kanu in court.
