The separatist Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has been returned to the custody of the Department of State Services after being released on Saturday to be attended by his personal physician.
The Federal High Court in Abuja had on July 20th ordered the DSS to grant Kanu access to his personal physicians, dismissing the DSS objection to the prayer.
According to IPOB, Kanu is suspected to be suffering from an ear infection and needs surgery.
Counsel for the IPOB leader, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told journalists in a phone conversation yesterday that Kanu, who has been in detention since 2021, had access to his personal physicians and had been taken back into custody.
The lawyer, however, declined further comments on his health conditions, among others.
