“DSS Are Still Maltreating Him And Punishing Detainees Who Interact With Him” – Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyers


Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers have alleged that the Department of State Services, DSS, has been punishing detainees who interact with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.

Kanu’s lead lawyers, Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Aloy Ejimakor, made the allegation in a statement jointly signed yesterday, Nov. 18.

The IPOB leader’s counsel said Kanu instructed them to make the statement public.

The statement titled, “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s detention condition at the DSS amounts to torture” says: “That despite a court order to the contrary, the condition of his detention at the DSS headquarters in Abuja continues to be harsh, degrading and inhumane.

“That he is solitarily confined to a very tiny cell twenty-three (23) hours of the day without access to sunlight and any social interactions whatsoever. He believes that this is aimed at inflicting extreme emotional and mental distress on him and breaking him psychologically.

“That any detainee who encounters and greets him during the single hour he is allowed outside his cell is promptly put in solitary confinement or transferred to maximum security as a punishment for exchanging mere greetings with him. Because of this, detainees have resorted to avoiding him and exchanging salutations with him, not to talk of any other form of social interactions.
