Meanwhile, the demand was based on alleged excruciating pains on Kanu occasioned by his gastro intestine disorder.
Kanu’s lawyer says he has not eaten for two days now
Ejiofor, in the statement, added that the detained IPOB leader had not been able to eat in the past 48 hours due to his poor health status.
Ejiofor who issued the statement after another routine visit to Kanu in the custody of the Department of the State Service in Abuja explained that from all indications, the security agency had no facility to cope with the health challenges of his client.
Part of the statement reads:
“Since it is now obvious that the DSS does not have the facility, capacity and or resources to manage Kanu’s deteriorating health condition, we are compelled to publicly implore the DSS, to allow us have Kanu back unconditionally, or better still, allow us to purchase the prescribed drugs for Kanu pending his unconditional release from their custody.”
“Nevertheless, we assure UmuChineke that our defense team led by Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), is not relenting in all actions we are taking to correct this anomaly and to put to a halt degrading treatment of Kanu,” Ejiofor affirmed.
