JUST IN: Nnamdi Kanu Wins DSS In Court
A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the Department of State Services (DSS) to allow detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu access to doctors of his choice and medical records.
Justice Binta Nyako issued the order on Thursday in a judgment on a suit filed for Kanu by his team of lawyers led by Mike Ozekhome (SAN).
Justice Nyako held that Kanu was constitutionally entitled to be allowed to access both medical doctors of his choice and his medical records despite being held in custody.
The judge however, ordered that any independent medical assessment or examination to be carried out on Kanu by his personal medical experts should be supervised by the DSS, with the whole process recorded and sealed for security purpose.
Kanu, had in the suit, marked FHC/ABJ/CS/ 2341/2022, demanded that his doctors should be allowed to conduct an independent examination on him to ascertain his actual state of health.
