The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu’s health is not becoming any better in the custody of the Department of State Services.

VANTAGE NEWS reports that Kanu’s counsel, Aloy Ejimakor and Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had alleged in a statement on Thursday that Kanu’s condition at the DSS cell amounted to torture.

Condemning the condition Kanu is being subjected into at the detention facility of the Department of the State Services, the Lawyers added that any detainee who encountered and greeted Kanu during the one hour “he is allowed outside his cell is promptly put in solitary confinement as a punishment for exchanging mere greetings with him.”

“Till date, the DSS has denied his (Kanu) repeated requests for an independent medical examination to determine the extent of damage done to his body by a suspected substance he may have been injected with during this abduction and extraordinary rendition,” the statement said.

“He has reason to believe that the said substance is depleting the potassium content of his body, thus causing him constipation, a feeling of skipped heartbeats, palpitations, fatigue, muscle weakness/spasms, and numbness” the Lawyers added.
