1 min read

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Tuesday said his client’s health was deteriorating in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).

The lawyer said the DSS refused N1 million given it by Kanu’s lead counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), for the medical needs of the embattled separatist leader.

Ejiofor said Kanu has been suffering from heart problems and some mineral deficiencies which require specialists’ attention.

He said Kanu has been refused access to his private doctors for the management of his health condition.

Ejiofor, who said he visited Kanu on Monday at the DSS detention facility, Abuja, said his client needed immediate attention without further delay.
