Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), the lead counsel of detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on Wednesday told Federal High Court sitting in Abuja that his client may go blind.
Addressing the court, Ozekhome said the IPOB leader has not been given access to his glasses since he was detained by the Department of State Service (DSS).
He said; “My lord, since 2015, his glasses were taken from him.
“The one he wore before his extraordinary rendition from Kenya was also taken from him.
“Till now, he does not have glasses to wear and his sight is deteriorating.
“My Lord we do not want the Defendant to go blind, that is why we have decided to bring it to the attention of the court.”
