The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, received support from Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
During court sitting on Tuesday, the new lead counsel to the IPOB leader, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), complained that the Department of State Services (DSS) is still treating his client with disdain in its custody.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria stated that the IPOB leader is being treated poorly by DSS operatived and being kept in solitary confinement in the custody of the secret police.
Reacting to the complaints, Justice Nyako ordered the DSS to allow Kanu to change the cloth which he wore during his first arraignment in June 2021.
She stated that the Biafra agitator should not appear in the Fendi outfit during his next appearance on Wednesday (Wednesday), reiterating her previous order that Kanu should be allowed the maximum comfort possible.
Justice Nyako directed the DSS to allow Kanu to have a bath whenever he wants to, change his clothes, eat properly and practice his faith.
The judge, however, reminded the IPOB leader that he cannot enjoy the luxury of a five-star hotel in the DSS detention facility.
“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,” she said.
