FG tells court - Nnamdi Kanu chose to appear in same attire because it is designers

 
Despite an order from Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, arrived on Wednesday in the same Fendi expensive clothes he had been wearing since his arrest in June last year.

On Tuesday, Justice Nyako ordered the Department of State Services to enable Kanu to change his clothes.

"I'm not going to see him in this cloth any longer." It's virtually off-white in color. Also, enable him to exercise and provide him with a good mattress," Justice Nyako had instructed.

Meanwhile, the prosecution lawyer, Shuaibu Labaran, told the Court on Wednesday that Kanu was the one who opted to wear his costly Fendi attire.

"My lord, we gave the defendant with a new Orthopedic mattress, pillows, and blankets according on your request yesterday," he stated.

"As for his appearance, he stated that he chose this particular one because it is designer."

Kanu's main counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome, stated in his submission to the Court that it was not true that his client insisted on wearing his designer's clothes.

"My Lord, what happened was that by the time the proceedings completed yesterday, we were unable to transfer to him the garments we had purchased for him because it was not his visiting day."

"We even talked about it with him this morning, and he indicated he'd want to receive the new clothes on the next visit day," Ozekhome continued.

He did, however, praise the DSS for providing a new mattress and pillows to the IPOB commander.

"I want to applaud the DSS and the Court for seeing to it," Ozekhome remarked.

Before allowing Kanu to be re-arraigned on the amended 15-count treasonable felony charge brought against him by the Federal Government, Justice Nyako reaffirmed her demand for a change of clothes.
