We did not Manhandle, harass Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer – DSS Cries out
Recall that Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer accused DSS for Manhandling and harassing them during their visit to the IPOB Leader.
According to the Lawyer, they were searched in a manner akin to a situation where hardened criminals are being searched for possible incriminating substances and objects.
Kanu’s lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, made the allegation in a statement on his Facebook wall, claiming that the lawyers were “practically stripped naked” during a visit to Kanu on Monday.
Ejiofor even went ahead to say they were apprehensive that the trial may not start until their client is transfered from DSS custody to a correctional centre.
The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied allegations that its operatives harassed and manhandled lawyers of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu during a visit to their client.
Spokesman of the service, dr peter afunanya, said in a message, “not true, please.”
Meanwhile, Fr Mbaka said despite Kanu and Igboho’s incarceration, Nigeria is still experiencing security challenges, adding that agitations have also continued.
The clergyman spoke in reaction to the recent attack on the Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA, by gunmen believed to be bandits.
Addressing his members during a homily, Mbaka said the attack on NDA was the beginning of what will befall Nigeria if President Muhammadu Buhari-led government failed to change.
He wondered if Kanu was responsible for the attack on NDA, stressing that the incident was still elementary compared to what would happen if the government failed to take adequate steps.
Read what Mbaka said below…
Did you not hear that bandits entered into our most secured place in this country? Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), the impenetrable place in Nigeria and killed some Nigerian military officers.
“Will the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu solve any problem? Will it stop any agitation? Now the attack on the NDA is it Nnamdi Kanu now? Is it not better that he is released?
“Since he is still under their custody and NDA could be perforated, violated and mesmerized, what is the hope of this country if it can happen in Nigeria Defence Academy? Where else is safe?
He went ahead to say that Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho are not Nigerians problem.
