His Lordship, this morning, delivered Ruling on an application that bordered on the need for urgent medical attention to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, argued by Prof. Mike Ozekhome, SAN, CON, OFR- a foremost Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who led Sir Ifeanyi Ejiofor and a team of lawyers.
The court in a well considered Ruling delivered this morning, consequently granted leave for judicial review in the form of order of Mandamus, compelling the State Security Services, and its Director General to allow Mazi Nnamdi Kanu UNHINDERED ACCESS to his medical doctors to enable them conduct an INDEPENDENT EXAMINATION of his present deteriorating health condition as earlier ordered by the Honourable Court on the 21st day of October, 2021.

This application is aimed at ensuring that the DSS will not hide under any indiscretion to treat with levity the deteriorating health condition of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
We shall keep the world abreast of every development in Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's case.
