Kanu Suffering Ear Pains – Ozekhome Laments, Insists On IPOB Leader’s Immediate release

Mike Ozekhome, a popular constitutional lawyer and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately order the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Ozekhome pointed out that Kanu’s health condition was deteriorating as confirmed by the medical practitioners of the Department of States Services, DSS.

He particularly stated that the freedom fighter was having ear pains and needed the attention of his private doctors.

Ozekhome insisted that the quest for Biafra’s freedom being pursued by Kanu was not illegal.

The constitutional lawyer made this known at a keynote address at an event ‘Handshake Across The Niger II’, which took place in the Coal City State, Enugu.

The legal practitioner emphasized on the need for Buhari to release Kanu without waiting for the decision of the Supreme Court on the matter.

According to him: “We are telling the Federal Government that this is not proper. Set this man free. Nnamdi Kanu is not well. He has ear pains. The DSS doctors have confirmed that he is not doing well, health wise.

“But they would still not allow him access to his own private doctor.

“We have told the Supreme Court to do the needful. The case has been adjourned till May 11.

“Please sir, on my bended knees, you can order the release of Nnamdi Kanu today. You can do it through the Attorney General of the Federation, who has the power to discontinue the case.

“You don’t have to wait for the Supreme Court decision before you do the right thing,” he said.

Kanu had earlier called on President Buhari to release him before handing over power to the incoming government of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Nigeria’s “President-elect”.
