Reasons Why Nnamdi Kanu Is Not Allowed To Change His Clothes - DSS Explains

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), started his trial in the Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday, dressed in his usual Fendi attire.

This is in violation of Justice Binta Nyako's December 2021 decision that he be allowed to change his clothes before his next court appearance.

Mr Kanu's lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, also claimed to the court that the DSS has refused to allow Kanu to change his clothes, despite the court's explicit instruction that he be permitted to do so.

Responding to Ozekhome’s complaint, the judge asked the Director of Legal Services of the DSS to provide explanations to the issue.

He said, "My Lord, clothes that were brought for the defendant had lion’s head (Isi agu) embroiled on them, and the defendant (Mr Kanu) can’t wear clothes with a lion’s head".

The secret service’s lawyer explained that “clothes with lion’s head offend the standard operating procedures” of the SSS.

The judge then asked the type of cloth Kanu prefers to wear.

In response, Kanu said, "I want to wear the clothes of my people, "Isi Agu."

The court, however, refused his request but asked the DSS to provide Kanu with his eyes glasses which his lawyers said was taken away from him.
