After months of pleas, the Department of State Services, DSS, on Monday granted Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, access to his family.
Kanu met with his brother, Emmanuel Kanu who was in the company of his legal team at the DSS headquarters in Abuja.
The meeting was confirmed by Kanu’s lead counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, in a series of tweets saying the IPOB leader is in good spirit.
“We just concluded today’s routine visit on a very sound note. What made today’s visit unique is that today marks it the first Day Our Client -Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is setting his eyes on his sibling,” he tweeted.
“In my company during the Family’s maiden visit to Our Client. Our Client is Prince Emmanuel Kanu (Fine Boy), the Representative of Our Client’s family.
“Our Client- Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is very strong in spirit.
“You will hear the rest from Prince Emmanuel Kanu.”
Kanu has been in DSS detention after he was rearrested and repatriated from an undisclosed African country in May.
The secret police had failed to produce Kanu during his last court hearing before Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court, citing ‘logistical challenges’.
His case was adjourned till October.
