The British High Commission in Nigeria has sought to meet with Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who is being held by the Department of State Services (DSS), according to SaharaReporters.
In addition, the IPOB leader’ s lawyers have arranged for some of his family members to visit him in the DSS detention center on the next visit.
Aloy Ejimakor, Kanu’ s lawyer, revealed this to SaharaReporters on Tuesday in response to the legal representation’ access to visit the pro- Biafra separatist leader.
Despite the fact that Ejimakor was not with the team yesterday, he confirmed that his two colleagues had visited and had a fantastic report.
According to SaharaReporters, Kanu’ s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, visited Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services in Abuja on Monday.
” After weeks of speculations and uncertainties, we have finally seen our Client- Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, ” Ejiofor had remarked. This is a position that we can authoritatively confirm to the rest of the globe.
” He is firm and stable, free of the burden of solitary imprisonment and the mental torture that comes with it. Despite the fact that the detaining authority is providing him with medical treatment, he still requires advanced medical care, which was a major aspect of our relief request to the Court. ”
” Yes, two of my colleagues saw him yesterday, ” Ejimakor said in response to the visit today. We’ re taking advantage of this chance to let folks who haven’ t seen him do so. That is something we are working on. The restriction was not imposed only on his lawyers by the DSS. People can see him, but only via his attorneys.
” I recently spoke with his senior brother, Kingsley, who lives in Germany. We were discussing the family members who will be able to see him during his next visit. As a result, his brother, Prince, would most likely be present. It’ d be wonderful to see him. ”
Ejimakor also emphasized the importance of Kanu being transferred from the secret police’ s custody to a prison institution in order to ensure his medical care and social contact.
” Those who had seen him reported that he appeared to be in good spirits. However, we continue to believe that he requires particular medical attention. In addition, we are requesting and negotiating for his transfer to prison. He can get the medical attention he needs and social contact he needs in a prison rather than a detention center.
” He requires this to recover psychologically from his ordeal. Friendships with his family, lawyers, fans, and well- wishers will be beneficial. Many of our Igbo leaders are eager to meet him and will do so sooner rather than later. However, I must state that the DSS environment is far too limiting in this regard. As a result, he will be transported to a jail facility.
” I spoke with the British High Commission officers as well. After the Monday experience, they also wish to visit him. So, we’ re working on all of these things, and hopefully, we’ ll be able to complete them. They’ re eager to see him. It was brought up during my recent conversation with the Consular, ” Ejimakor noted.
