Kanu Alleges DSS Denying Him Access to Visitors

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the banned Igbo secessionist group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has expressed his concerns about the Department of State Service (DSS) denying him the right to receive visitors of his choice.

Kanu’s legal representative, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, revealed this in a statement issued on Tuesday, following his regular meeting with Kanu at the DSS facility in Abuja on Monday. Kanu expressed his frustration with the DSS’s actions, which he believes go against a court order that previously granted him the privilege of choosing his visitors.

“Recently, the personnel of the SSS have extended their acts of lawlessness by denying Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, access to visitors of his choice, in clear violation of a subsisting court order,” Ejiofor wrote on his X account.

He however, hinted that Kanu’s lead counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), had begun contempt proceedings against the DSS and its Director General, Yusuf Bichi, over the denial.

“However, our erudite Lead Counsel, Prof. Mike Ozekhome, (SAN) has swung into action by commencing contempt proceedings against the Director General of the SSS to demand immediate compliance with all the Court Orders that the SSS is currently violating with impunity,” he added.
