Ekpa warns Buhari, DSS, and Malami that Nnamdi Kanu must not die in detention.


Popular Biafra agitator and separatist Simon Ekpa has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari, Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation Abubakar Malami, and the Department of State Security that Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, must not die in captivity.


In a statement made available  on Friday, the Finland-based lawyer and Prime Minister of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile, BRGIE, urged Buhari, the DSS, and Malami to release Nnamdi Kanu due to his poor health.

According to Ekpa, the Department of State Security’s medical staff certified that Nnamdi Kanu need immediate medical attention.

He bemoaned the fact that Kanu had been complaining of ear problems for more than two years without receiving sufficient medical attention.

He urged the Nigerian government to either free Kanu or release him.immediately, or enable his medical team to treat him while he is detained.

He kicked the DSS medical team that was operating on Nnamdi Kanu.

He insisted that nothing bad happen to Kanu while he was in DSS custody.

The information has revealed that the DSS Medical Unit has recommended urgent ear surgery for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra). With this letter, we are telling the DSS Medical Unit not to attempt any such manoeuvre.

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been complaining of his deteriorating health for Over two years, and DSS refused to see his medical team.

“He has been without his reading eyeglasses since he was kidnapped and extraordinarily renditioned to Nigeria against his will; still, the DSS refused the courtesy of replacing his eyeglasses and having an optical reexamination.

“The competent court of any wrongdoing has discharged Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, yet DSS keeps him captive.

“By recommending this urgent surgery for him after refusing access to his medical team, DSS has directly accepted that they have debased Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s health and are planning now to use an excuse of surgery to poison and kill him off.

“If DSS is sincere, they should allow Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the freedom to walk away from their dungeon and go and meet his medical team. His Life is not guaranteed under the DSS surgeons or the Nigeria healthcare system.

“In March 2022, Biafrans mourned DIG Joseph Egbunike, who died after medical surgery to remove a FISH BONE stuck in his throat.

“Hence, we are saying no to the DSS-recommended urgent surgery for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, which we view as a “Trojan Horse” and insincere.

“Suppose the DSS medical unit insists that the surgery must be done in their captivity and must be done urgently.

“In that case, they should allow Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s medical team to come in and perform the surgery.

“All Biafrans must stand up now and say no to any wicked and inglorious DSS attempt to perform any surgery on our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“If anything happens to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from DSS surgery, be assured that Nigeria will be on flame, and many suspected of being part of this kidnapping will pay heavily”,

His statement included.
