Written by crest887fm on July 3, 2021
The Department of State Services (DSS) has finally permitted leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to meet with his lawyer.
This was disclosed by Nnamdi Kanu’s counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, on his social media handle on Friday.
Kanu was arrested and extradicted to Nigeria earlier this week after leaving the country in alleged controversial circumstances.
His brother had also claimed that he was arrested in Kenya, a claim that the country has denied.
IPOB members had demanded that the Federal Government allow Kanu to see his lawyers and doctors.
The group also stated that their leader’s health has worsened since he has been in DSS custody, adding that he deserves access to his family members as well.
The pro-Biafra secessionist group revealed this in a statement titled, ‘Our Leader Must Be Allowed Access To His Lawyers, Doctors And Family.
In the statement through the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Friday, IPOB warned that no harm must befall Kanu.
