One of the counsels to the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Maxwell Opara has petitioned the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN), alleging that some medical doctors employed by the DSS were unprofessional and reckless when examining the secessionist,
It could be recalled that the pro-Biafran agitator is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) and standing trial for a treasonable felony.
Maxwell, who made the allegation against the DSS in the petition issued on Tuesday added that another doctor signed a medical report on Kanu, without any examination or diagnosis.

“He confronted the Doctor and asked him how he wrote and signed a medical report of a patient that he neither met nor examine. The said Doctor couldn’t respond…”
