The health of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has worsened as he had been diagnosed with gastrointestinal disorder following persistent heartburn, his lawyer and human rights activist, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, said on Monday.
Barrister Ejiofor made this know via his Twitter handle, According to Barrister Ejiofor, The Court-Ordered routine visit to our indefatigable Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has just been concluded, at the DSS Headquarters Abuja, where Onyendu is still being held in solitary confinement for over 14 months.
Highlight of today’s visit was to review other pending litigations initiated against the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN) for their grave violation of International Laws and Treaties in their criminal abduction.
The visit also afforded us the opportunity to review the overall welfare of Onyendu, as well as the level of the DSS compliance with existing Court Order in the management of Onyendu’s health condition.
For the records, it is pertinent to reiterate that for the umpteenth time, the lawless DSS have continued to treat with greatest contempt/disdain, the existing Court Order, which specifically directed that Onyendu should be allowed access to his personal Medical Doctor for an independent review/investigation of his current health status.
This is following the continued depletion of his potassium level, regrettably, this Court Order is gravely flouted with impunity by the DSS, as efforts made by Onyendu’s personal doctor to see him at the DSS facility where Onyendu is currently being detained was rebuffed/rejected by the DSS.
Presently, Onyendu is experiencing gastro intestine disorder, which requires regular intake of antacid and other availing medical solutions, following persistent heartburn.
Unfortunately, the DSS have denied him the least of the prescribed pain killer tablet that could provide momentary relief.
Following this development, our erudite Lead Counsel – Chief Mike Ozekhome SAN has immediately swung into action to ensure immediate end to this maltreatment and impunity.
Nevertheless, we still deem it compelling to place the World on Notice, that should anything untoward happen to Onyendu, the DSS and the Federal Government of Nigeria should be held responsible.
Orders of the Court must be obeyed, particularly where the Order has not been set aside. The DSS is a creation of the Law and must not be seen to be operating above the Laws of the Land that created it.
Enough is enough for this seemingly impunity!
Onyendu extends his heartfelt love and appreciation to you all, UmuChineke for remaining firm and strongly holding the fort. He is particularly impressed with your uncommon civility,
