Family Raises N1m For Nnamdi Kanu’s Feeding In Custody, Depriving Him food, Medication, Weapon Of Torture – Brother

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mike Ozekhome, and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu, will on Friday release a cheque of N1m for his drugs and feeding.

This was as the Special Counsel to Kanu, Aloy Ejimakor, raised the alarm after visiting Kanu with his family members on Thursday.

Ejimakor said, “I visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in company of Prince Emma Kanu and Barr. Nnaemeka Ejiofor.

“He instructed me to make it public that he has not been given his drugs for the past nine days and he has not eaten today because DSS says that they don’t have money to buy his food.”

Ejimakor described this startling revelation as “sad”.

Confirming this development, Kanu’s younger brother, Prince Emma Kanu said, “This is a confirmed story.

“Yesterday (Thursday), when we visited him, he has not had any food.

“I asked them (DSS) why, they said that there is no money for his regular meal and that they don’t have any money.

“So, we have also explained everything to the SAN, Mike Ozekhome.

“By today, SAN will prepare a cheque of N1m to be handed over to the DSS for his feeding.

“I will also make sure I raise money and take the DSS along with me to make sure he has enough food to eat since the federal government can’t take care of him.”

Depriving Kanu food, medication, weapon of torture Says Brother

Prince Kanunta Kanu, the older brother of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nanmdi Kanu, has said depriving Kanu food and medication in the Department of State Service custody, is a means of torturing him.

Kanu’s special counsel, Aloy Ejimakor and Kanu’s family had raised alarm that for nine days, the detained IPOB leader had not taken his drugs and had been starving, allegedly on the grounds that the DSS had informed them that it had no money to fund such.

According to Kanunta, “The deprivation of feeding, medication and sleeping in detention centres are weapons of torture.”

Kanunta, who raised a petition to the US State Department, UN Human Rights, EU Commission, UK Parliament, Rishi Sunak and the Canadian PM among others, said “it’s a shame in 24th century, inmates are starved to death in Nigeria.”

DSS denies violating human rights, says allegations false
He flayed the Federal Government over neglect of detainees in the country despite the huge budgets to that effect.

“That’s Nigeria for real. Even detainee’s in prisons across the country buy their own mattresses to sleep on, yet huge budget is allocated for same,” he said.

Ejimakor and Kanu’s family have concluded plans to raise more than N1m for Kanu’s feeding in the DSS custody in Abuja.
