Nnamdi Kanu Requests Transfer Amid Health Concerns

Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has made a fervent appeal to the Federal High Court, seeking a transfer from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) to Kuje prison. Kanu, who voiced his concerns over the lack of adequate medical facilities and alleged conspiracy to endanger his life while in DSS custody, emphasized the urgency of his situation.

Expressing his distress, Kanu highlighted the challenges he faces, stating, “People will come to see me they will not allow them. They don’t have a medical facility. I have congestive heart failure. They are patching me up. My foot is swollen. I asked them to conduct surgery, and they said they couldn’t. There is a conspiracy to die in detention. I want to be transferred to Kuje.”

These assertions underscore the gravity of Kanu’s health condition and his apprehensions regarding his wellbeing in DSS custody. With his foot swollen and concerns about the lack of appropriate medical care, Kanu’s plea for transfer to Kuje prison reflects his urgent need for medical attention and a safer environment.

Further details regarding Kanu’s appeal and the response from relevant authorities are awaited as the situation unfolds.
