The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has condemned the condition the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, is being subjected into at the detention facility of the Department of the State Services.

Kanu’s counsel, Aloy Ejimakor and Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had alleged in a statement on Thursday that Kanu’s condition at the DSS cell amounted to torture. 

They said any detainee who encountered and greeted Kanu during the one hour “he is allowed outside his cell is promptly put in solitary confinement as a punishment for exchanging mere greetings with him.”

The IPOB counsel said, “Till date, the DSS has denied his (Kanu) repeated requests for an independent medical examination to determine the extent of damage done to his body by a suspected substance he may have been injected with during this abduction and extraordinary rendition.

“He has reason to believe that the said substance is depleting the potassium content of his body, thus causing him constipation, a feeling of skipped heart beats, palpitations, fatigue, muscle weakness/spasms and numbness.”

But Ohanaeze Ndigbo described the actions of the DSS and by extension, the Federal Government, as objectionable and warned that such inhumane actions should be stopped.

The spokesman for Ohanaeze, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, who spoke to our correspondent in Enugu, said, “We have to find a way to talk to the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, SAN, and other concerned in this matter that it helps the image of Nigeria if you we are in the news for good reasons.


“The issue of Nnamdi Kanu has gone beyond the shores of this country; whatever happened to him will attract the international attention. So how we are viewed by the comity of nations is very important, it goes beyond Nnamdi Kanu, it affects everything to which Nigeria stands for.
