DSS Denies Nnamdi Kanu Access To Visitors Due To Deteriorating Health – Family

The family of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of preventing him from receiving visitors. Emmanuel Kanu, his brother, asserted that this denial of access is intended to conceal the deteriorating health condition of the IPOB leader. Despite court orders for his release, Nnamdi Kanu remains in DSS custody in Abuja, having been rearrested in Kenya and brought to Nigeria in June 2021.

While an Abuja Federal High Court had mandated the DSS to allow Kanu visits from family members and lawyers twice a week, Emmanuel Kanu lamented that this directive has not been adhered to.

The family finds the DSS’s actions suspicious, raising concerns about transparency and accountability regarding Nnamdi Kanu’s well-being during his detention.

“DSS is stopping my brother’s visitors from seeing him, which is another flagrant disregard of a subsisting court order and their effort to conceal my brother’s deteriorating health condition.

“For me, DSS has become a private security company where the authority manages it as his personal family business. I’m yet to know why my brother is still currently in detention against
