The suit which the legal team of the outlawed secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), had earlier filed to compel the Department of State Services (DSS) and its Director General (DG), Yusuf Bichi, to allow the detained IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, access to his doctors and medical records will come up this week before the Federal High Court, Abuja.
TOP MEDIA reports that this update was provided on Monday night by Ifeanyi Ejiofor, one of the lawyers for the embattled Kanu via a signed statement.
In the statement, Ejiofor also conveyed the detained IPOB leader’s message.
“As usual, Onyendu (Kanu) thanked you all, millions of his irrepressible followers and dogged supporters for standing shoulder-to-shoulder with him in this trying period.
“He is thankful, more importantly, for your unceasing prayers, even as he urged you all to continue to sustain the prevailing peaceful tempo as you have always done,” the statement said.
This newspaper reports that Kanu has been in the custody of the DSS in Abuja since June 2021 following his controversial arrest in Kenya.
