JUST IN: DSS Defies Judge, Brings Kanu To Court In Same Fendi Suit

The Department of State Services has brought leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, to the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, wearing the same attire (Fendi suit) he has worn since his extradition to Nigeria in July, 2021.

This is in defiance of the order by Justice Binta Nyako on Tuesday that he must not be brought back to court in the same dress.

Following a complaint by Kanu’s lawyer, Mike Ozekhome SAN, regarding his client wellness at the custody of the Department of States Services, the judge had instructed that the DSS should allow him change clothes.

Ozekhome had further contended that Kanu was in solitary confinement under harsh condition where he couldn’t change his clothes or practice his Jewish religion.

Nyako had subsequently told the DSS,
“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.”

 It was gathered that the reason he came to court with same clothes is not clear as the court session had not started as of the time of this report.

Kanu is billed to plead guilty or not, to fresh amended 15 count terrorism-related charges filed by the Nigerian government.

His plea could not be taken on Tuesday because Kanu’s lawyer contended that the FG served him the new processes very late and he needed time to go through it and discuss with his client.
