DSS Grants request by Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer to meet him

By Njoku Paul

In what’s seems to be a right step in the right direction over the unbridled speculation wether the Nigerian goverment would give a fair trial in the ongoing prosecution of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, the Department of State Service, DSS, have on Friday, July 2, 2021, communicated their willingness to allow the legal adviser of Nnamdi Kalu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, to see the incarcerated seccessionist leader.

Recall on Thursday July 1, 2021, that Kalu’s lead counsel, Mr. Ejiofor, requested the secret police via his official twitter account to meet with his client.
In his official Twitter account, he wrote,
“Only yesterday and in line with the protocols of the State Security Services, we applied for an audience with our Client-Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and very surprisingly, the SSS is yet to approve Our request.

“This is despite the fact that he was abducted in a foreign land and consequently marshalled before the Federal High Court No. 2 Abuja, in a suspicious circumstance and without my Knowledge as the substantive Counsel in the Matter. This drama took place in Nigeria Court, in gross violation of his Constitutional rights to Fair Hearing.

“If at the close of work today, nothing is heard from Department of State Security Services, we will be returning back to Court for the needful. DSS custody shouldn’t be the appropriate custody to keep Our Client, because they are hostile not only to we lawyers but his relatives too.

“As it stand today, we can not verify the health status of Our Client Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who has hitherto been on a daily medication. It is most plausible, that following restriction placed on visiting him, he may have been subjected to all forms of inhuman treatments. Ranging from torture, rough handling and threats, all targeted at extracting confessional statement from him.

“The World is hereby placed on Notice that if anything happen to Our Client-Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is presumably being subjected to these inhuman treatments the Nigeria Government will be held responsible. Our Client is inherently and Constitutionally presumed innocent of all allegations against him, particularly now the Government has submitted to judicial process.

“We still call for calm from all corners as we expedite legal action”, ”Ejiofor had said on Thursday.

But giving an update today, he said, “Thankfully Our effort is yielding the desired result, we have just received a communication approving Our visit to Our Client- Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“Shall keep the World posted on the outcome, immediately after the meeting, later in the Day. God is with Us”.
