DSS starving Nnamdi Kanu in detention, keeps him in solitary confinement, family raises the alarm

The family of detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has alleged that the Department of State Services (DSS) is starving him of food, even as the security agency has been accused of also keeping the IPOB leader in solitary confinement in a DSS facility in Abuja.

Spokesman of the family, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, who disclosed that he visited Mazi Kanu yesterday (Monday) at the DSS detention facility, decried the ill-treatment meted out to the self-determination agitator, saying what  his brother told him was not pleasing to the ears.

“I visited my brother today (Monday) and he told me that since yesterday (Sunday) up until this evening (Monday), he has not had any food. He said he was denied food since yesterday and their reason for that is what nobody could tell,” Emmanuel said.

“He also me that all the orders given by the court remain obeyed in the contrary. The court said he should have maximum comfort, but they are denying him that.”

The junior Kanu equally alleged that the DSS doctor in charge of his brother’s health is not qualified enough to know what he is suffering from, stressing that he needs his doctors from overseas to be allowed into the country to take his blood genes sample and look at it.

“The DSS doctor that is in charge of him, is not qualified enough to know what he is suffering from. Therefore, he needs his doctors from overseas to be allowed into the country to take his blood genes sample and look at them.

“My brother told me they have taken his blood sample for 21 times and each time he asks for medical report, they deny him that.

“Since they know that the doctor was not competent enough to treat him, why are they giving him the same doctor everyday?”

“Why have they taken his blood sample 21 times and nothing to show for it? They know he has the issue of low potassium in his blood, yet they don’t allow his doctors to see him. Are they trying to destroy or kill him or what? They should allow his foreign doctors to see him,” Prince Kanu added.

The family spokesman said DSS has no right to detain Nnamdi Kanu, adding that he should be taken to a correctional centre which is the right thing to do.

“What they are doing amounts to torturing Nnamdi Kanu and the Judge should know that the IPOB leader is held in solitary confinement and also under torture.

“Where he is kept, he is in solitary confinement and that amounts to torture. If anything happens to him, I pray that God will help us,” Prince Kanu warned.

While commending all those who he said are working under ground to ensure the IPOB leader was released, the junior Kanu said the family would not sit idly and continue to watch the court’s order being disobeyed with alacrity.

“We are going to write the African Union and other world bodies including world leaders too, drawing their attention to what Nnamdi Kanu is passing through in detention.”
