“Despite court order DSS denies Kanu access to new clothes”
Despite a recent court order, the Department of State Service has refused to allow the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to change his clothe, his brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, has said.
It will be recalled that Justice Binta Nyako of the Abuja federal High Court, had during the last court appearance of Kanu, ordered that she would not want to see Kanu again dressed in the same clothe which he wore since his rendition to Nigeria in June 2021.
But speaking on Thursday, the IPOB leader’s brother said he had visited the DSS headquarters in Abuja thrice with new clothes to give his brother, but the secret police has never allowed him to hand over the clothes to the IPOB leader.
“I was at the DSS headquarters today (Thursday) to give my brother his new clothes but the DSS did not allow me to give him the clothes. This is the third time they are stopping me from giving him his clothes in flagrant violation of court order”, Prince Emmanuel lamented.
He also alleged that the DSS denied access to two guests of Kanu (a lawyer and another citizen) who had come to see him, calling on the international community to prevail on Nigeria to obey her own court orders and allow his brother unfettered access to his clothes and guests.
