They have continued to confine him to a solitary cell under harsh conditions since his rendition to Nigeria in June. Solitary confinement is not correctional centers, they should send him to Kuje prison pending his court dates.
“We are asking the Nigeria government and security agencies that is busy granting and releasing bandits and real terrorists everyday to transfer our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to the Nigeria prison/Correctional Centre where persons awaiting trial and kept. Nothing should happen to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in detention.
“Nigeria DSS has denied our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU food since three to four days now,
“The whole world should take note of this atrocities and torture being meted out against our innocent Leader. Amnesty International, and other human rights groups should take note.

His rights should not be violated any more.” Powerful warned.
