'Nnamdi Kanu In Severe Pain, Needs Urgent Ear Surgery' – Simon Ekpa
Simon Ekpa disclosed that Nnamdi Kanu instructed him to inform the world that his ear infection is deteriorating
A popular Biafra agitator, Separatist Simon Ekpa, has raised the alarm over the worsening health condition of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous of Biafra.
Ekpa said this in a statement on Wednesday morning, May 24, 2023, through his official Twitter handle.
The Finland-based lawyer and Prime Minister of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile, BRGIE, disclosed that Nnamdi Kanu instructed him to inform the world that his ear infection is deteriorating.
He stated that Kanu urgently needed medical surgery on his ears.
According to him, Nnamdi Kanu is unhappy with the consistent refusal of the Nigerian Government to obey the court order on his release.
Ekpa alleged that the Nigerian judiciary is complicit in the continued delays of Nnamdi Kanu’s trial.
“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s present condition; I have been directed by our leader MNK to alert the world on his present condition and demand. MNK has instructed me to let Nigerians, Biafrans and all human rights organisations know that the ear ailment inflicted on him due to torture has been disturbing him in his left ear.
"The infection has now affected his right ear and needs urgent surgery. The DSS finally brought a doctor, who confirmed that urgent surgery is needed because he was in severe pain and couldn’t sleep again. Our leader also instructed me to alert the world that any time his case is coming up, either here in Nigeria or outside Nigeria.
"The world should also know that since the history of law in the world as a whole, this is the first time a superior court of record, i.e. The Court of Appeal, which is second to the highest court of the land, will give judgement and discharge someone and the same Court of Appeal through another Panel ask the authorities of Government not to obey the judgement by granting an unknown stay of execution to the Government authorities”, he wrote.
Recall that Kanu was re-arrested in 2019 by the Nigerian Government. Despite several court orders, President Muhammadu BuhaBuhari’sernment refused to grant him bail.
