Ututu Oma, Ezigbo UmuChineke.
We are pleased to inform Ezigbo UmuChineke and indeed the public that the committal proceedings we commenced against the Director General (DG) of the State Security Service (SSS) to command compliance with the Order made by His Lordship, Hon. Justice Binta Nyako, directing the SSS to, among other things, avail Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu with his medical records, yielded the desired results.
The decision of the SSS to carry out the court’s pronouncement, was on account of far reaching resolutions arrived at by an enlarged meeting of Onyendu’s legal team ably led by Prof. Mike Ozekhome SAN, which said meeting had both Onyendu’s team of Doctors and In-house Medical team of the SSS in full representation, auspiciously convened at the Headquarters of the SSS a few days ago.
With this development, the committal proceedings was halted following the SSS' compliance with the Court’s directive in this regard. The SSS has provided Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's medical records which we are now in receipt of, and which Onyendu's doctors have reviewed.
The said medical records assisted Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's medical team to review their earlier recommendations and comprehensive medical solutions, which details shall remain private.
We shall continue to keep you informed of every development as it unfolds.
It is clear that from every indication, a new date for the hearing of the appeal before the Supreme Court will be announced soon following the productive efforts of our erudite Lead Counsel-Prof. Mike Ozekome SAN.
Thank you all, and remain blessed.
Sir Ifeanyi Ejiofor Esq. (KSC)
