DSS denies Barrister Ejiofor from seeing Nnamdi Kanu
Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor

Members of the Department of Security Services (DSS) have once again denied Barrister Ejiofor access to Nnamdi Kanu.

Despite the court order which permitted his lawyers to have access to Kanu on the 26th, the DSS has once again flouted this order.

Ejiofor had on Tuesday informed the public of his meeting with Nnamdi Kanu on Thursday following the order of the court but he was refused access to him.

This has no doubt increased the speculations that Nnamdi Kanu may have been killed in the DSS custody.

According to Ejiofor who through his social media outlets informed the world about this latest development said;

DSS denied us access to Our Client -Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in clear violation of Court Order

“The Department of State Security Services (DSS) for the umpteenth time, denied us access to our Client today, insisting that our request would be looked into and accordingly approved by their DG before we could be granted access to him”.

“On the 26th Day of July 2021, His Lordship, Hon. Justice Nyako of Court No. 2 Federal High Court Abuja, after listening to our application, wherein I raised serious concerns about the safety and medical condition of Our Client, who ordinarily was supposed to be produced in court on that day, ordered that the Detention Authority (DSS) should allow us access to him”.

“Upon our arrival in their office today being the 29th Day of July 2021, conspicuously armed with the Court Order under reference, the officials of the DSS, though admitted being aware of the said Order but directed us to come up with a formal application stating the names of persons who we are visiting, which request was promptly complied with”.

“While we waited to be admitted for the visit, the officials of the DSS, unfortunately, came back to inform us that we should go and await further communication from them pending the approval of Our request”.

“Attached for your ease of reference is a copy of the Court Order under the reference”.

“Details of the visit as worked out in His Lordship’s Chambers by Counsel on both sides and Representative of State Security Services, collectively agreed upon by everyone, is not stated in the attached order, which details are known to all parties on the modality of the visit”.

“I am not surprised by the conduct of the DSS who have a history of disobedience to Court Orders, but I am worried because we do not know the present state of health of Our Client. I cannot categorically confirm to the World the present state of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, as at today”.

“It is to be pointed out that Our Client is presently detained in DSS facility under an Order of Court, and another Order made by the same Court directing Our access to our Client on specified days, is, unfortunately, being flouted by the officials of the State Security Services, as they have no reason or justification of any kind to refuse us access”.

“We will formally communicate to the Court first thing tomorrow morning on this unfortunate and strange development, and shall keep the World updated”.
