Kanu's suit to access Medical Records adjourned on July 20.


A Federal High Court in Abuja has fixed July 20 for judgment in the suit brought by detained Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB Nnamdi Kanu, seeking to access his medical records and medical Doctor on his ill health.

Justice Binta Nyako fixed the date after Kanu’s counsel, Professor Mike Ozekhome, SAN, and counsel to the DSS, A.M. Danlami, adopted their processes and presented their arguments for and against the suit.

At Tuesday’s proceedings, Ozekhome, SAN lead counsel for Kanu on Tuesday adopted his process in an application of mandamus to compel the Department of State Services, DSS, to allow him to have unhindered access to his medical Doctor and records.

In the suit, Kanu said he would need his doctors to conduct an independent examination to ascertain his health.

Kanu listed some of the records he would require from the DSS, including his admission, medical and clinical notes, nursing notes, observation charts and documentation during treatment or stay-in-hospital.

Kanu’s suit to access Medical Records adjourned on July 20.

Others are laboratory test results, pharmaceutical records, radiological scans, images and reports, blood transfusion records, physiotherapy and rehabilitative treatment records, clinical findings, and diagnosis and treatment prescribed records.

Also, counsel to DSS, A.M. Danlami, vehemently opposed the application, stating that available records show that Kanu is clinically stable.

He, therefore, urged the court to discountenance Kanu’s application for the sake of justice and national security.

Justice Binta Nyako adjourned to July 20 for judgment.
