Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the Counsel to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of starving the Biafra agitator while raising alarm.
Ejiofor explained that the DSS has not allowed Kanu to eat more than once a day in recent times according to the disclosures made by the detained leader of the secessionist group.
He faulted the secret police for ignoring his client’s worsening health condition and not doing enough to give him proper medical attention.
He made this disclosure in a message made available to journalists in Owerri, Imo State, on Friday after his routine visit with Kanu at DSS headquarters in Abuja on Thursday.
Ejiofor also lamented that 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.

According to Ejiofor: ‘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.’
The Eastern Updates recalls that Mike Ozekhome, the lawyer to Mr Kanu, had in February complained to the court that the DSS have blatantly refused to allow Kanu a change of clothes contrary to a definite order of the court that he must be allowed to wear a new outfit. The legal team of the group have on many occasions lamented the refusal of the DSS to obey court orders with impunity.
