Despite past warning, Nnamdi Kanu again appears in Court with the same dress
Despite a past court warning, ordering the Department of State Service (DSS) to allow the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, change his fendi wear, the man appeared again in the same outfit at Federal High Court, Abuja on Tuesday.
He was at the court for the continuation of his trial over 15-counts amended charges bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism filed against him by the federal government.
Justice Binta Nyako had during the hearing on January 18 ordered that Kanu be allowed to change his clothes, practice his Jewish faith, and have access to family members in the detention facility.
The order followed a complaint by lead defence counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), that his client’s fundamental human rights were being breached in custody.
Ozekhome, who questioned whether the Fendi, which the defendant was repatriated with from Kenya, had become a uniform, argued that his client is worn out psychologically, mentally traumatized, physically humiliated, and debilitated.
But in what could be seen as disobedience of the DSS to the last court order, the IPOB leader reappeared at the court on Tuesday in the same wear, while his lawyer alleged that he has also be denied access to his family members.
