Nnamdi Kanu Floors Buhari Government In Court

The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied claims that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is being denied maximum comfort in its custody.

Naija News reports that IPOB and Kanu’s family had accused the secret agency of maltreating the separatist leader and denying him food in its custody.

They also accused the secret police of denying the IPOB leader his medical report after taking his blood more than 21 times and not allowing him to change his clothes.

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, said contrary to claims by IPOB and Kanu’s lawyers, the Biafra agitator enjoys the best treatment and maximum comfort in its custody.

Afunanya stated that the IPOB leader also enjoys full rights as ordered by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

He, therefore, asked Nigerians to disregard IPOB claims, saying that Kanu enjoys his rights of worship or freedom from his religious practice.

The DSS spokesman said: “The service denies all the inciting allegations by IPOB and state that Nnamdi Kanu is not in an anyway maltreated in custody.

“Accusation of maltreatment negate the services standard operating procedure on the implementation of rights of a suspect.

“Nnamdi Kanu enjoys full luxury in the holding facility incomparable of any of it type anywhere in the country. He is accorded full rights and privileges. He is never denied his rights of worship or freedom from his religious practice.

“Adequate attention is paid to Kanu’s health. He has unhindered access to the best medical care and doctors. “The story of Kanu being starved is fallacious.

“He could not have been starved as he enjoys meals of his choice. That he is not allowed a change of clothing is also false. He is regularly allowed change of clothing as against what is presented to the public by IPOB propagandists.

“It is unfortunate that some elements decided to use outright misinformation to represent the state of affairs.”
