The Department of State Service DSS,  has denied the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, access to his doctor, as he had been diagnosed with gastrointestinal disorder following persistent heartburn.

His lawyer and human rights activists, Ifeanyi Ejiofor stated this to newsmen in Owerri, after they visited Kanu, at the DSS, detention centre, in Abuja.

According to him, despite the order of Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja that the IPOB leader should be given serious medical attention, the Department of State Services has been acting on the contrary.

“The Court-Ordered routine visit to our indefatigable Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has just been concluded, at the DSS Headquarters Abuja, where Onyendu is still being held in solitary confinement for over 14 months.

“Highlight of today’s visit was to review other pending litigations initiated against the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN) 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 allowed us 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.

Ejiofor said, “For the records, it is pertinent to reiterate that for the umpteenth time, the lawless DSS has continued to treat with greatest contempt/disdain, the existing Court Order, which specifically directed that Onyendu should be allowed access to his Medical Doctor for an independent review/investigation of his current health status. This is following the continued depletion of his potassium level.

“Regrettably, this Court Order is gravely flouted with impunity by the DSS, as efforts made by Onyendu’s personal doctor to see him at the DSS facility where Onyendu is currently being detained were rebuffed/rejected by the DSS.

“Presently, Onyendu is experiencing gastro intestine disorder, which requires regular intake of antacids and other availing medical solutions, following persistent heartburn. Unfortunately, the DSS has denied him the least of the prescribed pain killer tablet that could provide momentary relief,” he added.
