Court Remands Nnamdi Kanu in DSS Custody and Adjourns Trial Till November 10


Federal High Court in Abuja has rejected the request of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to be moved from DSS custody to Kuje Correctional Service Centre. This is the second time Kanu’s request has been turned down by the court.

In July, the IPOB leader asked to be moved to the prison, alleging that he had been “subjected to mental and psychological torture” by the Department of State Services (DSS).

At the court session on Thursday, October 21, Kanu pleaded not guilty to an amended seven-count charge bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism preferred against him by the federal government.

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, his lead counsel, asked the court to transfer him from the custody of the DSS to Kuje prison.

The presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako, refused the application and adjourned the case till November 10.

Kanu pleaded not guilty following his arraignment before a federal high court in Abuja.

Recall that the federal government recently amended the charges against him, raising them to seven counts as against the five counts he was previously answering to, bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism.
