Published

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court has ordered that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu will remain in the custody of the Department of State Services despite a request to transfer him to Kuje correctional centre.

Nyako gave the order on Monday during the resumption of Kanu’s trial in Abuja after four years.

In an application to the judge, Mr Kanu had argued that he cannot get a fair trial if he remains in the custody of the DSS.

He also sought for an order to grant him access to his medical doctor for the purpose of carrying out a comprehensive independent medical examination on him.

In her verdict, Justice Nyako ordered that the DSS should allow access to Mr Kanu, although it won’t be a free-for-all.

With Mr Kanu absent in court, the judge adjourned the trial to October 21.

The DSS said Mr Kanu’s absence in court was due to logistics reasons.
