Judge Warns DSS Not to Allow Nnamdi Kanu Appear in Court Wearing this Outfit.
On Tuesday, Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, appeared in court in his usual white attire, making the Chief Judge react with an order to the Department of State Services.
Kanu, who is facing charges bordering on terrorism and treasonable felony, was arraigned in Court on Tuesday in the same outfit he has worn in several court appearances: an alleged sign that he is subjected to inhumane treatment.
Drawing the attention of the court to it, Nnamdi Kanu’s lead counsel, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, told the Judge that the treatment of his client in the custody of the DSS was inhumane and it was to an extent that he is not allowed to change his clothes.
The Judge, Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, in reaction, ordered the Department of State Services to allow the IPOB leader to change his outfits.
” 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.
Regardless, the IPOB leader’ s lead counsel insisted that Kanu was still being kept in solitary confinement, and that inmates who greeted him were also being subjected to the same treatment.
However, reactions trailed as many Nigerians on social media reacted to the alleged maltreatment of the IPOB leader by the DSS.
