Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer for Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has once more demanded that his client be granted unconditional parole.
According to Ejiofor, the secret police’s inability to adequately manage Kanu’s medical concerns is what prompted the call.
After paying Kanu a normal visit on Monday when he was being held by the Department of State Services, the attorney announced this in a statement.
Ejiofor claimed that the separatist group leader needed seven dosages, but DSS was only able to obtain two of them before he ran out of them on Saturday.
He said, “I spent quality time with Kanu today, during which time he confirmed to me that the DSS in a feeble attempt at improvisation, in order to cure a serious health condition such as the one confronting Onyendu, only succeeded in procuring two doses, out of the full dosage of seven bottles of the prescribed medications. This was in response to the public outcry and wide condemnation that followed the lack of proper medical attention in addressing his deteriorating health condition.
The two doses were used up on September 24, 2022, a Saturday. Due to the current circumstances, Kanu was only given a small dosage of the prescribed medication, which was only a drop in the ocean and did not have the anticipated results.
We are certain that the DSS has exhausted all medical possibilities for treating Kanu’s life-threatening illness. Therefore, we fervently ask for Kanu’s unconditional release so that we can get the medical care we need.
Otherwise, we should be permitted to give the DSS the necessary money so that they can buy the full complement of meds that have been recommended for Kanu, or we might buy them ourselves to guarantee that Kanu leaves the DSS facility in excellent health when he shortly regains his freedom.
