 Intersociety Group Warns Nigerian Government 

"Nnandi Kanu, (IPOB) leader,  has been in solitary confinement at the detention facility of the Department of State Services (DSS) since June 2021."

According to "Sahara Reporters", "A  human rights organisation, the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety), on Sunday, warned the Nigerian government that Nnamdi Kanu must not die in custody."

"Kanu, who is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has been in solitary confinement at the detention facility of the Department of State Services (DSS) since June 2021."   Addressing a press conference in Enugu on Sunday, the group warned that if Kanu dies in custody, there will be trouble."

"Flanked by the principal officers and members of the Governing Board of Intersociety, the Board Chair, Chief Emeka Umeagbalasi, advised the federal government that instead of holding Kanu in perpetuity, it should start reconciling with aggrieve citizens of the country to douse tension in the country."   The group also called for the release of all other pro-Biafra agitators held in various detention facilities without trial.      

"It said, "Nnamdi Kanu" must not die in detention. The DSS has the capacity to give medical treatment either in Nigeria or outside Nigeria." The consequences of dying in detention will be far-reaching."   

 "The federal government should also release all other pro-Biafra agitators held in various detention centres across the country. As a government that will soon wind up, it should start making amends and use a political solution in addressing the issue of pro-Biafra agitation."
