Just Imagine What DSS Did To Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyers

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOВ), has been at the center of speculation regarding his escape from custody. However, Kanu’s legal representatives have expressed concern over the denial of access to their client by Nigeria’s secret police, the Department of State Services (DSS).

The legal team has a crucial need to meet with Kanu in order to adequately prepare for his upcoming trial scheduled for June 19 and 20. Despite their efforts, they were refused entry to see Kanu when they visited the DSS headquarters on Friday.

This denial of access not only contradicts court orders but also appears to be a deliberate attempt to obstruct a fair trial for Kanu.

A statement titled “As the hearing date draws near, the DSS continues to hinder Nnamdi Kanu’s right to fair trial’ was issued by the legal team, with Aloy Ejimakor, one of the lawyers, signing it.

The statement elaborated on how the actions of the DSS blatantly demonstrate the government’ s disregard for the law and the court. According to the statement, the DSS prohibited Kanu’s lawyers from meeting him as a group, insisting that they could only see him individually or leave altogether.

Consequently, the legal team departed without being able to meet with Kanu, which will undoubtedly impede their ability to adequately prepare for the trial on June 19.

The legal team strongly criticized the DSS for its blatant disregard of court orders and issued a warning that they would vehemently oppose any trial that lacks fairness.

They questioned the motives behind the Attorney General and Minister of Justice’ s insistence on proceeding with the trial if the government is incapable of adhering to basic court orders. Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOВ), has been a prominent figure advocating for the secession of Biafra from Nigeria.

He was arrested in 2015. on charges of treason and has been in. custody since then. His trial, which has been highly contentious, is scheduled to take place on June 19 and 20. The recent controversy surrounding Kanu’s case revolves around allegations that he has escaped from custody.

These rumors gained traction when his legal team raised concerns. about being denied access to their client by the Department of State Services (DSS), Nigeria’s secret police. The denial of access came as a surprise and has raised questions about the transparency and fairness of the upcoming trial.. Kanu’ s legal team visited the DSS headquarters in an attempt to meet with him and prepare for the trial.

However, they were turned away and informed that they could only meet Kanu individually or leave. This refusal to allow a group meeting goes against court orders and has been viewed as a deliberate obstruction of justice.

The legal team expressed their disappointment and frustration, emphasizing that this denial hinders their ability to adequately defend Kanu. and undermines the principles of a fair trial.
