Department of State Service (DSS) has on Monday afternoon of July 19, 2021, blocked the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu from accessing the United Kingdom (UK), Consular Services.
This was made known by Kanu’s lawyer Barrister Aloy Ejimakor in Press statement made available to newsmen.
The lawyer explained that the DSS has refused to allow Kanu sign forms that will permit UK Consular to visit him in DSS detention.
According to him, Both Forms relate to affirming his consent to consular and diplomatic interventions by the United Kingdom and the High Commission in Nigeria.
“Surprisingly, the Forms were returned to me unsigned.
The statement reads in full:
“Summary of my visitation with our Client, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on Monday 19th July.
“Last Saturday, when I visited Mazi Kanu, I expressed strong concerns about the inordinate delay in having Kanu sign the two Forms I had taken to the DSS for Kanu’s signature some days before.
‘Both Forms relate to affirming his consent to consular and diplomatic interventions by the United Kingdom and the High Commission in Nigeria”.
