According to Vanguard report, the Department of State Service (DSS) on Tuesday, October 20, refused the leader of the separatist group's lawyer access to his client despite subsisting court order allowing him access to his lawyer and physician.

However, the Magistrate’s CourtWuse 11 sitting in Abuja has refused to release  Nnamdi Kanu as he is yet to meet the bail conditions.

The lawyer was said to have disclosed on Wednesday, October 21,  that Kanu had not been released yet owing to meeting up those conditions.

Kanu's lawyer, Egechukwu Obetta, said that the filing of paper work in line with his bail condition was in progress.

A statement published on the website of Radio Biafra on Saturday, October 17, had disclosed the arrest of Kanu by the DSS as soon as he got to Nigeria from the United Kingdom.

Following the said arrest, the separatist group worldwide had to write an open letter to world leaders over the plight of its leader.

The Biafra group said in the letter: “The world leaders must stand up to its integrity, pride, and in defense of the law they made.”

It also led to a faction of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) demanding that the federal government should immediately releases Kanu.

But the issue continued to apparently amass more controversies among Nigerians as the leader of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, on Monday, October 19, disowned the director noting that Kanu was a rebel who had incited violence among MASSOB members which led to his dismissal.
