"My health is deteriorating, I may die in detention" — IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, tells Court

Detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has filed an application before the Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking to be transferred from the custody of the Department of State Service, DSS, to the Nigerian Correctional Service Centre in Kuje. (Read More Here).

Kanu, in the application he filed through his team of lawyers, on Wednesday, decried that he has been denied access to his medical doctors. He said he might die in the custody of the DSS if nothing was done to urgently address his deteriorating health condition.

He specifically applied for an order of the trial court, “directing the transfer of the Applicant from the custody of the National Headquarters of the State Security Service to the Nigerian Correctional Service Centre in Kuje, Abuja, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, where he was initially detained before he was granted bail, pending the determination of the charge.

As well as, an order of this Honourable Court directing the Defendant/Applicant’s custodian, to grant access to his medical experts/doctors to carry out a comprehensive independent medical examination of the defendant/applicant’s health condition/status, while in custody.”

It will be recalled that Kanu was on June 27 returned back to the country after he was arrested from a yet to be confirmed African country.
