Prince Kanu, younger brother of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, alleged that State Department (DSS) agents had taken food from his detained brother.
Kanu is currently being held at DSS premises by order of the Federal High Court headed by Judge Binta Nyako in Abuja on charges of the crime of treason brought against him by the Nigerian government.
However, Prince has revealed the alleged suffering the DSS allegedly inflicted on his brother after his visit to his home on Monday.
In a Twitter post seen by SaharaReporters, Prince also mentioned that Kanu was also denied his medical report, despite his blood samples taken 21 times.
Prince was on a routine visit to the detained separatist leader.
The pro-Biafra leader regretted the action of the DSS despite several court decisions ordering the Nigerian government to make the medical report available to him.
The younger brother’s statement said in part, âI just visited Alpha Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at the Abuja State Security Services Department. During my interaction with him, he told me that he had been denied food since yesterday.
âAs if that were not enough, the DSS had also refused his medical report after having taken his blood more than 21 times. They continuously disobeyed all court orders.
In the same article, Kanu’s special advisor Aloy Ejimakor also condemned the despicable action of the secret police for treating his client in an inhumane manner.
Ejimakor wrote: âStarving an inmate is an act of TORTURE. Moreover, it is illegal and immoral. Any nation that approves of it has diminished its sovereign right to incarceration.
