Kanu returns to DSS custody after check-up by personal doctors

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, was on Sunday returned to the custody of the Department of State Services(DSS) after being allowed on Saturday to see his personal physicians.

 

The Federal High Court in Abuja on July 20 ordered the DSS to grant Kanu access to his personal physicians, dismissing the DSS objection to the prayer, The Nation reports.

 

According to IPOB, Kanu is suspected to be suffering from an ear infection and needs surgery.

 

Counsel for the IPOB leader, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told newsmen that Kanu, who has been in detention since 2021, had access to his personal physicians and had been taken back into custody.

 

Ejiofor said: “He has been attended to, and after preliminary examinations, he was taken back.”

 

The lawyer, however, declined further comments on his health conditions, among others.

 

The IPOB counsel had tweeted on Saturday that Kanu met with his personal doctors in a hospital in Abuja outside the facility of the DSS.

 

Ejiofor, who said he witnessed the medical examination, described it as seamless and productive.
