Aloy Ejimakor, counsel for Indigenous People of Biafra leader Nnamdi Kanu, has stated that his client urgently requires a heart surgery for a valve replacement.
Ejimakor through a tweet on Saturday released a medical report from Pink Rose Hospital Limited dated August 23, 2022, which said that Kanu has a life-threatening heart condition.
“The patient requires urgent surgical (internal heart surgery) intervention for tricuspid valve (heart valve) replacement,” the medical advice reads in part.
Ejimakor said: “For avoidance of any doubt, Nigerian government knew since August 2022 that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu requires surgery.
“Besides the court orders, this is enough to release him or accord him his right to independent medical care. It’s a universal norm.”
He pleaded with the Federal Government to free the detained agitator so that he might receive medical care.
