The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has raised an alarm over the rising number of tuberculosis-infected detainees in the facility of the Department of State, DSS, in Abuja.
Kanu lamented that numerous detainees have tested positive for tuberculosis in the DSS facility.
The IPOB leader disclosed this while meeting with members of his legal team, led by Special Counsel Aloy Ejimakor, on Thursday.
Ejimakor tweeted: “I visited with #MNK today in the company of Prince Emma Kanu and one of his other lawyers. Onyendu directed that I extend his profound condolences to Mrs Rachel Nwosu on the demise of her gallant husband.
“He disclosed that numerous detainees at the DSS have now tested positive for Tuberculosis. He hopes the Nigerian government would alert the WHO & Red Cross to intervene before it becomes a pandemic inside the DSS.
“Onyendu’s poor health persists & he’s still not getting the required care. While I was with him, I observed his noticeable discomfort, malaise & general ill health. He salutes all who remain faithful & steadfast.”
