Judge orders DSS to give Nnamdi Kanu change of clothes
Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has been granted permission to change his clothes by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Kanu, who is facing terrorist and treasonable criminal accusations, was arraigned in court on Tuesday.
His primary attorney, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, brought the Judge’s attention to the treatment his client was receiving in DSS care.
He stated that Kanu was still being held in solitary confinement and that detainees who greeted him were likewise subjected to the same treatment.
This is despite an order by Justice Nyako for the DSS to allow the IPOB leader to practice his faith, have his bath, change his clothes and eat properly.
In response, Nyako reiterated her earlier order for the DSS to allow Kanu to enjoy some comfort. She, however, reminded his counsel that a detention facility is not a five-star hotel.
“I don’t want to see him in these clothes again. This one is almost off-white. Also, make sure that you allow him to exercise,” Nyako added.
