Department of State Services has released leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, to undergo an independent medical examination.

Kanu’s lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, said his client went through a medical examination in an unnamed hospital in Abuja on Friday.

A statement by Ejiofor said, “We are pleased to inform you that Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu met with his choice personal physician yesterday (Friday) in a hospital in Abuja, outside the facility of the State Security Service (SSS).

“As part of the protocol, I witnessed the consultation. The medical examination was seamless and productive, and he (Kanu) will be progressing to the next stage soon.”

The IPOB leader has been detained by the DSS since June 2021, after he was arrested and repatriated from Kenya.

Kanu had repeatedly asked for an independent medical examination of his health condition.
