Ifeanyi Ejiofor, leader to the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, said the separatist leader’s health has worsened as he had been diagnosed with gastrointestinal disorder following persistent heartburn.
Ejiofor said the Department of State Services has refused to obey the order of Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja that the IPOB leader should be given serious medical attention.
He made this known on Monday in a statement after his visit to Kanu in the custody of the DSS in Abuja.
He said, “Presently, Onyendu is experiencing gastrointestinal disorder, which requires regular intake of antacid and other availing medical solutions, following persistent heartburn. Unfortunately, the DSS have denied him the least of the prescribed pain killer tablet that could provide momentary relief.
“Following this development, our erudite lead counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) has immediately swung into action to ensure immediate end to this maltreatment and impunity. Nevertheless, we still deem it compelling to place the world on notice, that should anything untoward happen to Onyendu, the DSS and the Federal Government of Nigeria should be held responsible.
“Highlight of the visit was to review other pending litigations initiated against the Federal Republic of Nigeria for their grave violation of international laws and treaties in their criminal abduction and extraordinary rendition of Onyendu, sanctions and reparation arising from this act of state terrorism.
“The visit also afforded us the opportunity to review the overall welfare of Onyendu, as well as the level of the DSS compliance with existing court order in the management of Onyendu’s health condition.
“For the records, it is pertinent to reiterate that for the umpteenth time, the lawless DSS have continued to treat with greatest contempt/disdain, the existing court order, which specifically directed that Onyendu should be allowed access to his personal medical doctor for an independent review/investigation of his current health status. This is following the continued depletion of his potassium level.
“Regrettably, this court order is gravely flouted with impunity by the DSS, as efforts made by Onyendu’s personal doctor to see him at the DSS facility where Onyendu is currently being detained was rebuffed/rejected by the DSS. Enough is enough for this seemingly impunity!”
Kidnap kingpin John Ewa paraded in Yenagoa
John Ewa, the Bayelsa born suspected kidnap kingpin, who was arrested in Abuja and alleged to be responsible for high-profile kidnappings in the State is currently being paraded alongside three members of his gang by the Bayelsa State Police Command at the Police Officers Mess, Yenagoa Bayelsa State.
It was reported that the suspected kidnap kingpin had been on the wanted list of the police for various alleged abductions in the state.
Naija News 247 gathered that the police trailed Ewa, who goes by the alias ‘Lion’, to Abuja where they nabbed him on Saturday.
The suspect, who flaunts wealth on social media, is believed to be involved in several kidnap incidents around Yenagoa, the state capital.
In a six-second clip that trended on social media at the weekend, Ewa, dressed in his pyjamas, was seen displaying few notes of foreign currency saying, “Get money for this life, hustle, hustle.”
Buhari directed us to drop Osinbajo from Tinubu’s campaign – APC
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said President Muhammadu Buhari, directed that Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, be dropped from the Campaign Council of the party’s Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Naija News 247 had reported that Osinbajo’s name was missing from the he 422-man list realised by the Presidential Campaign Council Secretary, James Faleke, in Abuja on Friday night on Friday night.
The spokesman of the campaign, Festus Keyamo, said President Buhari asked that Osinbajo alongside Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, should not be part of the campaign council so they could focus on governance.
Keyamo disclosed this on Saturday in a statement while explaining the reason behind the decision to drop the vice president
The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to some stories making the rounds that there may be something amiss within the family of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the name of our own revered and respected Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON, is not included in the list of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.”
“Nothing can be farther from the facts. For the avoidance of doubt, President Muhammadu Buhari , GCFR, is the Chairman of the Campaign Council. As a result, Mr. President has SPECIFICALLY directed that the Vice-President and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha should be left out of the Campaign Council to concentrate on the governance of the country and administration of Government. As a responsible Party and Government, all the key functionaries of government cannot abandon their positions for electioneering campaigns. The APC has the mandate of the Nigerian people to administer the country on their behalf at least till May, 29, 2023, and this we intend to do with all sense of responsibility.
“We will not toe the path of those who governed the country in an irresponsible manner before us and our Party is not in total disarray like those who wish to ‘rescue’ the country, but cannot simply manage their own internal affairs.”
