Prominent Biafra agitator, Separatist Simon Ekpa, has expressed grave concern over the deteriorating health of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
In a statement issued via his official Twitter account, Ekpa, who is a Finland-based lawyer and the Prime Minister of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile (BRGIE), revealed that Kanu had instructed him to inform the world about his worsening ear infection and the urgent need for surgery.
“Nnamdi Kanu’s present condition; I have been directed by our leader MNK to alert the world on his present condition and demand. MNK has instructed me to let Nigerians, Biafrans, and all human rights organizations know that the ear ailment inflicted on him due to torture has been disturbing him in his left ear.
“The infection has now affected his right ear and needs urgent surgery. The DSS finally brought a doctor, who confirmed that urgent surgery is needed because he was in severe pain and couldn’t sleep again. Our leader also instructed me to alert the world that any time his case is coming up, either here in Nigeria or outside Nigeria,” Ekpa stated.
Furthermore, Ekpa accused the Nigerian government of consistently disregarding the court order for Kanu’s release, suggesting that the country’s judiciary is complicit in the prolonged delays in Kanu’s trial.
“The world should also know that since the history of law in the world as a whole, this is the first time a superior court of record, i.e. The Court of Appeal, which is second to the highest court of the land, will give judgment and discharge someone and the same Court of Appeal through another Panel ask the authorities of Government not to obey the judgment by granting an unknown stay of execution to the Government authorities,” Ekpa added.
