Court Sends Nnamdi Kanu Back To DSS Custody, Adjourns Till November

Leader of the outlawed Indigenuous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Thursday had his bid to be moved to Kuje Correctional Centre knocked back.

The presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako, of the Federal High Court, Abuja, turned down the IPOB leader's request to be moved from the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, to Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja.

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lead counsel to Kanu, had asked the court to transfer his client from the DSS custody to Kuje facility in Abuja.

Ejiofor's application was, however, declined by the trial judge, Justice Nyako.

Daily Post reporters gathered that this latest refusal makes it the second time.

Recall that Kanu had in July requested to be transferred to Kuje prison, complaining that he had been exposed to psychological and mental torture by the secret police, the request was said to be rebuffed by the court.

Consequently, the case was adjourned till November 10 to hear the charges levelled against him by the Nigerian government.

The judge, however, ordered that three people preferred by Kanu should be allowed to visit him every Thursday.
