The Department of State Services (DSS) has been accused by a family member of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu of detaining the Biafra agitator in a ‘torture chamber’ despite the order for his release.
One of the brothers of the agitator, Kanunta Kanu disclosed that Kanu is still not a free man despite court orders.
He was reacting to the Federal High Court in Umuahia’s ruling that Kanu is returned to Kenya.
Africa Today News, New York recalls that the court had two weeks ago ruled that Kanu’s extraordinary rendition was against his fundamental rights.
It ordered that the IPOB leader should be restored to the state he was in before the Kenyan arrest and extraordinary rendition last year.
Africa Today News, New York recall that Kanu was arrested in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria last year.
The Nigerian Government was accused of subjecting the IPOB leader to extraordinary rendition last year.
Upon his return to Nigeria, Kanu was locked up by the Department of State Services, DSS, while subjecting him to legal tussles.
To this end, Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, instituted a legal action against the Nigerian Government.
On Wednesday, the court granted all the seven prayers sought by Ejimakor.
Reacting, Kanunta tweeted: ‘Some people are having the notion that #MaziNnamdiKanu has been released from detention the answer is NO, he is still in DSS “torture chamber’.
‘When will @NGRPresident and @GovNigeria obey the court orders? @StateDept @FCDOGovUK @CanadianPM @EU_Commission @UN @UKParliament.’
In a related development, the Court of Appeal headquarters in Abuja has clarified that the transfer of its 21 Justices to various divisions in the country has nothing to do with the judgment of the Court that discharged and quashed the terrorism charges against Kanu.
Contrary to a report in a section of the media, the Appellate Court said that the postings of 21 out of its 81 Justices was a routine exercise aimed at reinvigorating the justice delivery of the Court.
