Kanu should be allowed access to his personal doctors, family cries out
* As ‘Biafran monarchs’ caution FG
By Steve Oko
The family of the detained Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has raised fresh concern over his health.
The family which spoke through Kanu’s younger brother, Prince Emmanuel, said that they had not been allowed access to him since he was brought back to Nigeria.
They expressed worry over his health condition and appealed to the United States of America, Israel, Russia European Union and other lovers of democracy come to their aid.
The family particularly appealed to them to ensure Kanu got justice, insisting that he is only a freedom fighter and deserves International protection.
” They should allow him see his personal doctors. We don’t know why they don’t want his personal doctors to see him”, Prince Emmanuel agonised.
The family also insisted on explanations on how their son was allegedly “abuducted and bundled” back to Nigeria.
Prince Emmanuel said that the family was still in the dark on how their son was”abuducted in Kenya and brought to Nigeria”.
He said that they would not attend any court hearing against their son unless it was explained to them how he was “kidnapped in Kenya, and who his abductors were or were working for”.
” We won’t be in court on 26th (July) until they explain to us how and who kidnapped Nnamdi in Kenya.
” We need clarifications on what happened and how he was brought to Nigeria illegally.
” Even Britain whose citizenship he holds said she needed explanations on what happened. So, we need to know what happened.
” As far as we are concerned, Nnamdi was abuducted in Kenya and brought to Nigeria illegally”.
He particularly appealed to them to ensure Kanu got justice, insisting that he is only a freedom fighter and deserves International protection.
This is as traditional rulers under the aegis of ‘monarchs of Biafran land’ have advised Government to tread with caution over Kanu’s matter.
They cautioned Government not to allow “anything happen to Kanu” while in its custody
The monarchs who stormed Kanu’s Afaraukwu country home to solidarise with the family, said his arrest and detention would not bring any solution to the rising agitation for self determination but rather worsen the agitations.
In a statement jointly signed by the National Chairman of the body, HRH Eze Gideon Ejike, ; National Secretary, HRH Eze Onyeka Madu; and its Anambra State Chairman, HRH Eze Levi Okonkwo, the monarchs cautioned against mishandling of Kanu’s matter.
They insisted that dialogue and not prosecution would solve the growing agitation for self determination in parts of the country.
The monarchs advised the federal government to look into the questions raised by Kanu and find a way of resolving them instead of clamping down on him.
According to them, Kanu’s detention would rather fuel agitations for self determination, hence the need for government to look for political solution.Steve Oko, Publisher/C.E.O, WaWa News Global.
