Ozekhome told the Court presided over by Justice Binta Nyako that Kanu, who is currently in custody of the Department of State Service (DSS), may go blind if nothing was urgently done to restore his sight.
Meanwhile, IPOB has grounded the South East, turning major cities in Imo and Anambra ghost towns.
Residents of Imo State completely obeyed IPOB’s sit-at-home order in solidarity with today’s court case in Abuja.
TheNiche observed that Owerri, the capital city of Imo State, was a complete ghost town.
The situation is not different from Orlu and Okigwe as the streets were deserted.
Markets were shut down. Schools were also closed as parents refused to allow their children step out of their homes.
Most schools, banks, markets were shut down and commercial activities were grounded to a halt.
A resident of Owerri, who simply identified himself as Ndubuisi, who spoke to TheNiche blamed both government and IPOB.
“We are in a mess and no one knows when this nonsense will end. They are simply ruining our lives. How can a whole state be shut down and every activity brought to a halt because someone is being tried?
“How will this ghost Wednesday help in freeing Nnamdi Kanu? I blame the government,” he lamented.
