Ifeanyi Ejiofor, a counsel to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on Monday said the health condition of his client is deteriorating.
Ejiofor, who stated this in a statement while giving update after visiting the secessionist at the Department of State Services, DSS headquarters, Abuja, said Kanu is in dire need of the service of a cardiologist for a thorough medical investigation.
According to the lawyer, Kanu complained that he was not being given quality treatment at the DSS custody.
The statement reads partly, “The visit also provided us an opportunity to further find out Onyendu’s present health status.
“Onyendu, who looked visibly frail, once again narrated to me how his body has been turned into “trial and error experiment” by the quack in-house medical practitioners recruited by the DSS who ostensibly knows next to nothing about Onyendu’s peculiar health condition.
“Onyendu was emphatic that he is in dire need of the service of a cardiologist for a comprehensive medical examination.
“Onyendu lamented that one particular doctor with the DSS who first diagnosed the speedy depreciation in his potassium level was sacked early last year by the vindictive agency, for daring to make such profound findings.
“It is on this note that we are calling on the Federal Government of Nigeria to immediately release Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from the custody of the DSS, in line with the unambiguous order of the Court of Appeal which discharged him and forbade his further detention.”
