Some Nigerian doctors have explained that leader of proscribed IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu is suffering from acute schizophrenia reason why he cannot maintain a line of thought.
According to renowned Nigerian doctor, Emeka Chikwe Jr of the University of Ibadan said it is unfortunate that many Nigerians listen and act on the speeches of a very sick man, warning that, it is time they snap themselves back to reality.
He explained that schizophrenia is a long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation.
“The signs are there, he checks all the boxes and should be advised to submit himself for rigorous testing,” Dr. Chikwe said.
He stated that some of the signs that show disconnects between the thought, emotion, and behavior of Kanu are that he could say President Buhari is dead in one sentence and he the next he says he has been cloned.
“These allegations and accusations defy logic, reasoning, and most importantly science. He makes up stories as they come to his head and cannot dwell on any subject for long.
Nigeria psychologist, Dr O. S. Peter of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) also described Kanu as someone of unstable behavior noting that his state of mind prevents normal perception, bbehavior, or social interaction.
Dr. Peter who majors in human behavior says the IPOB leader exhibits these signs and it shows he is seriously mentally ill, adding that, the symptoms of mental disorders found in Kanu are strong feelings of anger.
Peter said Kanu is always expressing extreme anger, like burning Nigeria, killing Nigerians, destroying Nigeria and even leaders of South East/South, stressing that these traits are similar to those found in Jim Jones, the infamous American preacher and faith healer turned cult leader who conspired with his inner circle to direct a mass murder-suicide of his followers in Jonestown, Guyana.
The renowned psychologist said Kanu’s continuous description of Nigeria as a zoo is another trait of insanity, saying that Kanu instigating his supporters to beat up and disgrace politicians of Igbo extraction when they travel abroad, as in the case of former Senator Ike Ekweremadu, shows a strong trait of insanity.
Peter said delusions or hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that are not really there) are other signs of insanity. When he says things like the VP was forcefully injected COVID-19 or that the VP and Femi Adesina were kidnapped or under house arrest or that Aso is empty, these are signs of insanity because they are a fabrication of his imagination,” he said.
