The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, who is being held at the Abuja facility of the Department of State Service (DSS), alleges that he is being denied food.
Kanu is currently detained on the order of Justice Binta Murtala Nyako-led Federal High Court in Abuja, on the treasonable felony charges preferred against him by the federal government of Nigeria.
The younger brother to the IPOB leader, Prince Kanu Meme, raised the alarm over the ill-treatment by the Department of the State Service in a terse statement to the Press on Monday.
He also said the Nigeria’s secret police has denied his brother his medical report after taking his blood for more than 21 times.
Prince Kanu Meme was on a routine visit to the detained separatist leader, Nnamdi.
The pro-biafra leader regretted the action of the DSS despite several court pronouncement ordering the Nigerian government to make available to him the medical report.
The statement by the younger brother partly read, “Just visited the Alpha Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, at the Department of State Security Services Abuja. During my interaction with him, he told me that he has been denied food since yesterday.
“As if that wasn’t enough, DSS had also denied him his medical report after taking his blood for more than 21 times. They have continuously disobeyed all the court orders.”
