Aloy Ejimakor, the Special Counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has revealed that the medical condition of his client is worsening.
Ejimakor wrote a letter to the European Union in Nigeria on Wednesday, urging the EU to intervene in Kanu’s case.
He added that the Federal Government of Nigeria would listen to a plea from the union.
He asked the EU to urge the Federal Government of Nigeria to desist from further criminal prosecution of Kanu.
The letter read: “We the solicitors of Nnamdi Kanu on whose behalf and instruction we hereby most respectfully request for the urgent intervention of the European Union Delegation in urging the Government of Nigeria to promptly implement the opinion of the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention and the pertinent judgement of the Federal High Court of Nigeria (Umuahia) regarding the matter of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently detained by the GON in solitary confinement.
“We are also very alarmed at the worsening health condition of Mr Kanu, exacerbated by the inhumane detention conditions to which he is being subjected, including his solitary confinement since June 27, 2021.
“We trust therefore that your mission and home governments will give the most urgent and expeditious attention and consideration to our humble prayers.”
