Allow Kanu Access To Personal Physicians, Cousin Urges FG

Fresh concern over Nnamdi Kanu’s health has led a cousin of his to plead with the Federal Government to grant the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra access to his personal physicians for thorough medical attention.
Mr Chijindu Offor, the first cousin of the IPOB leader, raised this plea in a media chat with newsmen, saying he was seriously worried over the health status of Kanu.

He noted that the Department of State Services where the IPOB leader is currently being detained “lacks the needed facilities to handle his health challenges,” hence the compelling need to allow him access to his private doctors “to properly take care of him.”
Kanu’s cousin advised that the IPOB leader’s medical condition could worsen if not properly managed by experts, a sad development he said could even result to his death.
“Kanu’s death in custody would serve Nigeria no good, but worsen matters for the country as the aftermath of such tragedy will be too enormous to handle,” he said.
He urged the Federal Government to heed the appeals from various quarters to engage Kanu in dialogue with a view to resolving the cause of the growing agitation for self determination.
Only dialogue and meaningful engagement of the necessary stakeholders, he said, will resolve the various agitations for self determination in the country.
Offor urged leaders of the country to stop pretending and convene a round table discuss where the various genuine national questions will be frankly addressed to save Nigeria from the precipice.
He warned that intimidation and use of brute force by government will not stop the growing agitation for self determination by different regions in the country which he said was a result of the general disenchanted in the land.
