The Department of State Services has stopped detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, from signing a consular assistance form by the United Kingdom.
One of the counsels for the detained IPOB leader, Aloy Ejimakor, stated this in a statement on Monday after visiting Kanu in DSS custody.
The IPOB leader holds both Nigerian and British citizenship.
Kanu, who was rearrested recently from overseas, is facing terrorism-related charges. He had jumped bail before fleeing to the United Kingdom. The IPOB leader was, however, rearrested in controversial circumstances lately and brought back to Nigeria. He has since been detained in the custody of the Department of State Services.
