LATEST: Ohanaeze Calls For Nnamdi Kanu’s Release Over His Latest Health Condition

The incarcerated leader of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is allegedly suffering from poor health, according to the leading Igbo sociocultural organization Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.

According to, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the IPOB leader’s attorney, revealed that Kanu had a gastrointestinal ailment and was taking antacids and other prescribed medications constantly.

He criticized the Department of State Service (DSS) for failing to follow Justice Binta Nyako’s order for the IPOB leader to receive serious medical attention from a Federal High Court in Abuja.

In a statement released on Tuesday by its spokesman, Alex Ogbonnia, Ohanaeze issued a warning that if anything were to happen to the IPOB leader in detention.


He said: “The above report should be very worrisome to any fair-minded patriotic Nigerian because it is self-evident that the Nnamdi Kanu phenomenon is a product of circumstances.

“It is rather an outcome, or the effect of the orchestrated alienation of the Southeast from the centres of power in Nigeria, especially since the onset of President Buhari administration”.

“Ohanaeze reminded the federal government that the incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu had rather contributed to the enormity of insecurity in the Southeast “and one wonders what will happen if by the utter carelessness, negligence or unnecessary victimization, something untoward happens to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu”.

Ogbonnia further recalled that the group and several Igbo leaders had on several occasions advised President Buhari to seek a political solution, saying that the case is beyond the courts or the use of force.

The statement added: “The Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization and several eminent Igbo have repeatedly appealed to the heart of Mr. President to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on the premise of a political solution.

“The only living legend among those that fought for the Nigerian independence and the minister of Aviation in the First Republic, Chief Mbazulike Amechi presented the request to President Buhari when he visited Abakiliki, Ebonyi State, as his last wish.


“Earlier before that, Mbazulike had also met President Buhari in Aso Rock, Abuja for the same reason. In the interim, common sense will ask: why deny Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the necessary access to a medical doctor? This is very curious and raises a lot of questions.

“Instructively, many uninformed Nigerians share the base reasoning of the proverbial ostrich; the ostrich buries its head in the sand, joyously flapping its wings, and believes that it has escaped from reality. As in the ostrich, the civilised world is watching!”
