Mr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, Lawyer to the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has stated that his client needs urgent medical attention.
Ejiofor, in a statement made available to POLITICS NIGERIA on Friday, revealed that Kanu was tortured and subjected to inhumane treatment by security agents.
He added that his client is currently suffering from a heart ailment that requires urgent medical treatment.
“My Client – Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was actually abducted by the accursed Kenya’s Special Police Force on the 18th of June 2021 at their International Airport, and consequently taken to an undisclosed residence under dehumanizing conditions.”
“He was tortured and subjected to all forms of inhuman treatment which worsened his health condition. *He was illegally detained for eight good DAYS in Kenya* before being transferred to their Nigerian counterpart.”
“He was purportedly investigated on a bogus charge while in their custody, ostensibly, awaiting to be handed over after their findings proved him innocent of all the spurious allegations. They later beckoned on their Nigerian Counterpart to take over.”
“Kenyan Government was deeply involved in the abduction, detention and ill-treatment of my Client before the illegal handover to their Nigerian counterpart.”
“A scan of his heart showed that the heart has enlarged by 13% due to the dehumanizing treatment meted to him. There will be need for immediate proper medical examination and attention for him.”
“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu conveyed his goodwill message to all IPOB family members worldwide, and craved for your unrelentless prayers. We are going back to the Court for the needful. Other details cannot be entertained here. His fortified legal team will address these infractions at the proper forum as we progress. Other details on our legal strategy, may not be made public.”

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused the Department of State Services, DSS, of plotting to inject its leader, Nnamdi Kanu with a poisonous vaccine.
IPOB’s Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, alleged that the poisonous vaccine was meant to kill Kanu slowly.
In a statement he signed, Powerful warned that such an attempt should be jettisoned because the consequences would be severe.
IPOB also said the Ohanaeze Ndigbo must ensure that nothing happens to its leader while in DSS custody.
According to Powerful:
“We pity them and Nigeria if anything happens to our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The Nigeria Government and security agencies must understand the product we are made of and how prepared we are.
“South East Governors and Ohaneze including politicians in the region must ensure that nothing bad happens to Nnamdi Kanu because Miyetti Allah and sympathisers of terrorists are going free in the country but the ordinary person and innocent citizens are molestinged every day because they are Biafrans. We won’t accept that.
“We also want to tell the DSS to jettison any plans to inject our leader with a poisonous vaccine that will make him die slowly. Any such attempt will come with unimaginable consequences! Nnamdi Kanu must not die in custody!”
