Deji Adeyanju, a human rights activist, has stated that Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra – IPOB, is in poor health in the custody of operatives from the Department of State Security – DSS.

According to Adeyanju, who made the claim on his social media platform, the DSS is torturing Nnamdi by blindfolding him and leaving him on the floor in a frigid air-conditioned room.

Kanu is being exposed to all types of degrading treatment, according to Adeyanju, who also validated the fears of many Nigerians who believe the DSS will stop at nothing to obtain a pound of flesh.

“They are torturing Nnamdi Kanu,” he wrote. They blindfolded him for several hours, left him on the floor in a frigid air-conditioned room, and subjected him to a variety of humiliating techniques. This is a serious breach of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment. To cease the breaches of Kanu’s rights, his lawyers must request that he be transferred from DSS custody to prison on the next court hearing. They’ve also barred him from seeing his attorneys or family members. This is another serious infringement of human rights. Even a convicted felon has legal rights.”

Remember that the British government’s position was previously reported by  E-nigeria! Newspaper in a statement attributed to Dean Hurlock, the Commission’s Head of Communication in Abuja, who said that the British government is willing to provide “consular assistance” to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, who was arrested by the Nigerian government on Sunday, READ IT HERE.

What would Nnamdi Kanu’s fate be in such an unfriendly environment? Adeyanju, as previously indicated, recommended the IPOB leader’s attorneys to rise to the occasion by insisting on his being remanded in prison custody instead at the next court sitting.
