Kanu undergoing mental torture in DSS cell- Lawyer
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have threatened to ‘cripple’ Nigeria if anything happens to its incarcerated leader Nnamdi Kanu while in detention.
IPOB’s Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, in a statement warned that the Nigerian government was provoking the secessionist group.
Powerful said: “We declare without equivocations that the Nigeria Government should not take our calmness for granted.
“Should anything untoward happen to our leader while in detention or even after, we will totally cripple Nigeria and its Government!
“Our intelligence units are following up events, including the torture being meted out to him since his abduction.
“The world should see how the wicked Nigerian government is provoking us.”
In an interview on Arise Television on Monday morning, Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, stated that Kanu was undergoing mental torture in the hands of the DSS operatives.
He also stated that the IPOB leader needs medical attention, as his health had deteriorated since his arrest.
It would be recalled that the Nigerian government in connection with foreign security agencies, rearrested Kanu and repatriated him to Nigeria to continue his trial.
