Princess Chinwe Kanu, the younger sister of detained Director of Radio Biafra and leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has raised the alarm over the health condition of her elder brother, saying that personnel of the Department of State Services (DSS) want to kill him in detention.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Sun at her father’s compound in Afara Ukwu, Umuahia, Abia State, Princess Kanu said what she saw of her elder brother when she attended his trial in Abuja on Monday made her to conclude that the DSS wants to kill him while in their custody.

“Honestly, the way they are going about this case I’m not comfortable with it because when I saw my brother, he looked like a shadow of his former self. He looked pale and anaemic and he has physical pain as a result of torture, starvation and the hardship he is going through in the hands of the DSS operatives,” she alleged.

“After the court session, when he (Nnamdi) came out, as the IPOB members and the Biafrans were outside the gate while some were in the court premises hailing him and chanting: “Nnamdi, Nnamdi ka anyi ga-eso”, the way the DSS man rough-handled him, he almost fell down. I don’t know what his reasons were, but I’m happy Nnamdi never challenged him.”

She said the DSS should know that her brother was not a criminal, but only a prisoner of conscience. “They held him so tight that he screamed and I felt bad. Because his health is deteriorating by the day, I am calling on rights activists, the international crime code, the Amnesty International, the UN and the British commission to come and rescue their citizen in the hands of the DSS. They are so mean and wicked, they will kill him if care is not taken,” she pleaded.

Expressing joy that she saw her brother in high spirits inside the courtroom which she said the family was not allowed to enter if not for the intervention of their lawyer, Princess Kanu said she has confidence that God will set the director of Radio Biafra free in the next adjourned date.

“I have confidence in what Eze Chukwuokike Abiama (God) will do because He is not a man that He will lie neither is He a man that He can disappoint us or deceive us and because His word is yea and Amen and because He is the one that brought His son out, He will not abandon or leave him that’s what I believe in,” Princess Kanu said.

She said it was a shame the DSS that was supposed to serve and protect the citizen, on the contrary, it is torturing and starving them to death. “My brother was assaulted publicly in the court premises and I’m standing here with an evidence to show the world what is going on the injustice and nepotism that is going on in Nigeria. I’m afraid of my live and that of my family with the way things are going.”

Princess Kanu said it was wrong for the Federal Government to have charged his brother with terrorism, noting that this was the height of tyranny. “Will someone help tell President Muhammadu Buhari that this is a democratic dispensation, not autocratic government where he was the General?” she asked.

She said charging Nnamdi with terror ism means equating him with Boko Haram members, saying it was the height of injustice and a way to continue in humiliating and assaulting an unarmed civilian which she said was not the right thing to do.
