The Department of State Services, DSS, again allegedly denied counsels and family members of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, from having access to him in detention.
Special Counsel to Kanu, Aloy Ejimakor disclosed that DSS denied them access to Kanu on Thursday.
Ejimakor said the latest blockade makes it the third time in a row.
In a tweet, he said the secret police gave the same excuse they issued in the past.
According to Ejimakor, the Nigerian Government used the DSS to prevent them from seeing Kanu in detention.
He wrote: “UPDATE: Three times in a row, the Government of Nigeria (via DSS) blocks court-ordered access to Onyendu Nnamdi Kanu on the same excuses.
“We were here in strength – My humble self, Ozekhome, Ejiofor & Prince Emma. This crass tyranny will live in infamy and harden a lot of hearts.”
A few days ago, Ejimakor had claimed that DSS officials prevented them from having access to Kanu last week Thursday and Monday.
Ejimakor said the secret police said the “Special Squad” meant to receive them was on an outside assignment
