Judge to DSS: I don't want to see Nnamdi Kanu dressed like this again

The Department of State Services (DSS) has been ordered by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja to enable Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, to change his clothes.

Kanu was arraigned in court on Tuesday, facing allegations that include terrorism and treasonable crime.

Mike Ozekhome, SAN, his lead attorney, brought the Judge's attention to the treatment his client was receiving while in DSS custody.

Kanu was still being held in solitary detention, he added, adding that detainees who greeted him were also being held in solitary confinement.

Despite Justice Nyako's ruling that the DSS let the IPOB leader to practice his faith, bathe, change his clothes, and eat properly, the DSS has refused.

Nyako responded by repeating her earlier order for the DSS to provide Kanu with some comfort. She did warn his attorney, though, that a prison center is not a five-star hotel.

"I don't want to see him dressed like this ever again." It's virtually off-white in color. Also, make sure you give him the opportunity to exercise," Nyako advised.
