Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lawyer to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, alleges that the Department of State Services, DSS, is starving the Biafra agitator.
According to Ejiofor, the DSS has not allowed Kanu to eat more than once a day.
He disclosed this to journalists in Owerri, Imo State, on Friday after his routine visit to Kanu at DSS headquarters in Abuja.
The lawyer said the IPOB’s leader was getting worse due to the refusal of the DSS, to allow him to change his clothes despite repeated court orders to do so.
Ejiofor said, “We were also reliably informed by Onyendu that his meals are no longer served regularly. Onyendu barely eats once a day, and this situation is not helping his deteriorating medical condition.
“The lawless DSS personnel have remained adamant with how they treat Court orders with levity and disdain, which is unacceptable as no one is above the law anywhere in the world.
“Be assured UmuChineke that we, in the legal team are not resting on our oars towards ensuring that these infractions are addressed with immediate effect.”
