A lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor has raised alarm, accusing the Department of State Services of keeping a tuberculosis patient in the cell of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
According to him, Kanu is now bleeding through the nose after allegedly coming in contact with the tuberculosis patient.
In a tweet on Monday, the lawyer said, “Today, my associate, Barr Mandela, met with Onyendu, MNK (Kanu) at the DSS.
“He reports that MNK (Kanu) directed me to make it public that he had an episode of profuse nose bleeding yesterday and that the DSS has transferred a detainee diagnosed with tuberculosis to his cell block. This is ominous.
“Except for failed nations, there’s no nation that detains a man after his incarceration has been municipally and internationally declared illegal, with compensation and apology awarded to him.”
