Mike Ezekhome, Lead counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Wednesday, decried the deteriorating health of his client.
Ezekhome lamented that Kanu may go blind in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
The Senior Advocate Nigeria raised the alarm at the resumed trial of Kanu at the Federal High Court in Abuja, which was presided by Justice Binta Nyako.
According to Ozekhome, “Kanu may go blind if nothing was urgently done.”
Ozekhome also argued that Kanu was extraordinarily renditioned from Kenya in 2021.
The senior advocate stressed that the offences allegedly committed by Kanu have no basis, adding that where and when they were committed was not stated in the charges.
He also stated that Nigeria has no territorial jurisdiction.
Kanu is facing a 15-count charge bordering on terrorism, treason, incitement and operating an unlawful group.
The IPOB leader had pleaded not guilty to the charges.
