Nnamdi Kanu in court

A ruling by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the Department of State Services to allow Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, to change his clothes.

A court appearance was held on Tuesday for Kanu, who is facing allegations that border on terrorism as well as treasonable felony.

In his lead counsel’s submission, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, called the Judge’s attention to the care his client was receiving while in the custody of the Department of Social Services.

The officer stated that Kanu was still being held in solitary confinement, and that any convicts who came up to him were subjected to the same treatment.

However, this is in violation of a court ruling that ordered the Department of State Services to allow the IPOB leader to exercise his religious freedoms and properly eat as well as bathe and change his clothes.

Nyako responded by reiterating her earlier order to the DSS to provide Kanu with some level of comfort. She, on the other hand, reminded his attorney that a prison facility is not the same as a five-star resort.

“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.
