The family of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has confirmed raising N1 million for the feeding of the Biafra agitator.

Kanu’s younger brother, Prince Emmanuel, disclosed that Kanu’s lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, would hand over the money to the Department of State Services, DSS, for the Biafra agitator’s feeding.

Emmanuel lamented the Federal Government’s inability to feed Kanu while locked up by the DSS.

“This is a confirmed story. On Thursday, when we visited Kanu, he had not had any food.

“I asked them (DSS) why they said that there is no money for his regular meal and that they don’t have any money.

“So, we have also explained everything to the SAN, Mike Ozekhome.

“By today, SAN will prepare a cheque of N1m to be handed over to the DSS for his feeding.

“I will also make sure I raise money and take the DSS along with me to make sure he has enough food to eat since the federal government can’t take care of him,” he said in a statement.

Recall that Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor had raised the alarm over the Federal Government’s inability to feed his client.

Ejimakor said the DSS denied Kanu his medication for nine days and food.

Earlier Report says the Department of State Services (DSS) has not given the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, his medication for nine days, and had not given him food today.

This was made known by Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, via a tweet on Thursday following his routine visit to the self-determination group’s leader at the DSS headquarters in Abuja.

Ejimakor said he visited the IPOB leader in the company of Kanu’s brother, Prince Emma Kanu and lawyer, Nnaemeka Ejiofor.

According to the Ejimakor, the DSS said there was no money to buy Kanu’s food, the reason he has not eaten today.

“Today, I visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the company of Prince Emma Kanu and Barrister Nnaemeka Ejiofor.

“He instructed me to make it public that he has not been given his drugs for the past nine days and he has not eaten today because DSS says that they don’t have money to buy his food,” Ejimakor tweetet

Below is the tweet:

Special Update: Today, I visited #MNK in company of Prince Emma Kanu & Barr. Nnaemeka Ejiofor. He instructed me to make it public that he has not been given his drugs for the past 9 days & he has not eaten today because DSS says that they don’t have money to buy his food. #Sad.
