The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, is said to be sick and suffering from an intestinal disorder. His lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor made this known in a statement issued on Monday.
He claims that Kanu’s health has worsened and has been disagnosed with a gastrointestinal disorder following persistent heartburn.
It can be recalled that Kanu has been in detention for 14 months and is facing trial in court over alleged treason charges. The statement read in part;
“Presently, Onyendu is experiencing gastrointestinal disorder, which requires regular intake of antacid and other availing medical solutions, following persistent heartburn.”
“Following this development, our erudite lead counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) has immediately swung into action to ensure immediate end to this maltreatment and impunity.”
“Highlight of the visit was to review other pending litigations initiated against the Federal Republic of Nigeria for their grave violation of international laws and treaties in their criminal abduction and extraordinary rendition of Onyendu, sanctions and reparation arising from this act of state terrorism.”
“The visit also afforded us the opportunity to review the overall welfare of Onyendu, as well as the level of the DSS compliance with existing court order in the management of Onyendu’s health condition.”
“Nevertheless, we still deem it compelling to place the world on notice, that should anything untoward happen to Onyendu, the DSS and the Federal Government of Nigeria should be held responsible.”
