Court Orders DSS To Allow Kanu Access To Medical Care Of Choice

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Thursday, ordered the  Department of State Service to allow the leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, access to a medical doctor of his choice.

Justice Binta Nyako who presided over the matter admitted that Kanu requires an urgent ear surgery amidst his reported failing health.

The court in it’s judgment also ordered that all Kanu’s medical records be made available to the IPOB leader.

More so, Justice Nyako ordered the Department of State Services to monitor, record and seal all medical sessions administered on the IPOB leader, for security purposes.

Earlier, the trial Judge  dismissed the preliminary objections filed by the DSS challenging the application before it, on grounds that Kanu has the right to medical services even in detention.
