Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (MNK), who is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPoB), said that many people in the prison called the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja have tuberculosis disease.
He asked the government to tell WHO and Red Cross to help stop a disease outbreak. He talked to them through his lawyer named Aloy Ejimakor.
Aloy told on Twitter that he visited the leader of IPOB on Thursday. He saw that Kanu was not well and needed help quickly.
Today, I went to see #MNK with Prince Emma Kanu and one of his other lawyers. Onyendu asked me to say he’s sorry for Mrs Rachel Nwosu’s husband passing away.
He shared that a lot of people kept at the DSS are now diagnosed with Tuberculosis.
He wants the Nigerian Government to tell the WHO and Red Cross to help before the sickness gets really bad in the DSS.
Onyendu is sick and still not getting the right treatment.
When I was with him, I saw that he was very uncomfortable, feeling sick, and not in good health. He greets and respects those who are loyal and unwavering.
Kanu’s brother, Kingsley Kanu, said in an interview that he is worried about his brother getting tuberculosis. He thinks someone might be doing it on purpose.
He said that we need to quickly do something to stop a sickness outbreak from happening.
Remember when Kanu said that a sick prisoner with tuberculosis was moved near his cell and he told everyone about it.
He said that he was arrested in Ohafia in September 2022 and taken to the DSS building.
