DSS explains why Nnamdi Kanu not allowed to change Clothes.
Written by News Room on February 17, 2022
The trial of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu resumed on Wednesday at the Federal High Court in Abuja with him wearing his regular Fendi outfit.
This is contrary to the order made by Justice Binta Nyako in December 2021 that he be allowed to change his outfit before his next appearance in court.
Lead counsel to the detained leader Mike Ozekhome also complained to the court that the DSS have refused to allow Kanu a change clothes contrary to a definite order of the court that he must be allowed to wear a new outfit.
Responding to Ozekhome’s complaint, the judge asked the Director of Legal Services of the DSS to provide explanations to the issue said the clothes that were brought for the defendant had lion’s head embroiled on them, and the defendant (Mr Kanu) cannot wear clothes with a lion’s head because it offends the standard operating procedures of the SSS.
The judge then asked the type of cloth Kanu prefers to wear who responded by saying he wanted to wear the clothes of his people, the “Isi Agu.”
The IPOB leader is being prosecuted on a 15-count amended charge before the Federal High Court in Abuja.
