Kanu, who is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has been in solitary confinement at the detention facility of the Department of State Services since June 2021.

Recently, Kanu’s brother claimed that the embattled IPOB leader was seriously ill and need urgent medical treatment that required immediate surgery. He also alleged that DSS is starving him of food.

But addressing a press conference in Enugu on Sunday, Intersociety advised the apex government to ensure Kanu does not die in custody because of its consequence.

Flanked by the principal officers and members of the Governing Board of Intersociety, the Board Chair, Chief Emeka Umeagbalasi, advised the federal government to start reconciling with aggrieve citizens of the country to douse tensions in the country instead of holding Kanu in detention.

While also calling for the release of all other pro-Biafra agitators held in various detention facilities without trial, he said that if Nnamdi Kanu dies in the government’s hands, the consequences would be “far-reaching”.
