The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that he is being starved of food in the facility of the Department of State Service (DSS) where he is currently detained.
The Eastern Updates reports that 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.
However, disclosing the alleged ill-treatment by the Department of the State Service in a terse statement sighted by The Eastern Updates on Monday, the younger brother to the secessionist leader, Prince Kanu Meme, also claimed that the secret police has denied him 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.’
Also speaking yesterday, the counsel to the detained secessionist leader, Ifeanyi Ejiofor also corroborated the claim made by Kanu’s brother.
