DSS denied me access to Kanu, says Sowore


The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, says the Department of State Service (DSS) denied him access to Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.

Kanu’s lawyer reported on Monday that the DSS had denied Onyendu access to his doctor, as he had been diagnosed with gastrointestinal disorder following persistent heartburn.

The lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor on Thursday reports that Kanu has not eaten for two days owing to excruciating pains occasioned by his gastro intestine disorder.

Meanwhile, the human rights activist who also visited on Thursday was denied access to see him after waiting for almost 3 hours.

Sowore said, “His lawyer made an application for me to visit him with a lawyer who is also his father-in-law. His father-in-law, when he came back, said Kanu was eager to see me and that was why he left on time to enable me go in and see him.

“I waited for another 20 minutes and we had to approach them to know what was going on. They said, ‘sorry, Mr. Sowore, the time of visitation has elapsed’ and that was how I was denied opportunity to see him.

“So I am going to be pushing for a visitation but this time around when I am going, I am going to invite everybody to come with me, anybody who is willing to come.

“But I am very disappointed. They think they can play games with some of us who are interested in seeing him freed as soon as possible. He hasn’t committed any crime to have warranted him extradition from Kenya.

“I know how sensitive they are about this. They have attacked me several times. But what is important is his rights and the rights of his people, the rights of Africans to seek whenever they want; their rights, either to self-determination, liberty, freedom of association are not only enshrined in our constitution, but also guaranteed by international organisations,” he said.
