Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

The leader of the separatist Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has been returned to the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Sunday. He had been briefly released on Saturday to be attended by his personal physician.

Kanu’s release for medical attention came after the Federal High Court in Abuja ordered the DSS to grant him access to his personal physicians, despite the DSS’s objections.

According to IPOB, Kanu is suspected to be suffering from an ear infection and requires surgery. His counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, confirmed that Kanu had access to his personal physicians and was taken back into custody after preliminary examinations.

Ejiofor had witnessed the medical examination on Saturday and described it as seamless and productive. However, further details about Kanu’s health conditions were not disclosed.

Kanu has been in detention since 2021, and his medical condition has been a subject of concern for his supporters and legal team.
