Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court on Tuesday ordered the Department of State Services, DSS, to allow Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, change his clothes.

She gave the order after Kanu’s lead Counsel, Mike Ozekhome, informed her of how the DSS was treating Kanu in custody.

Speaking during Tuesday’s proceedings, Ozikhome disclosed that the IPOB leader was still subjected to solitary confinement, adding that inmates who greeted him were subjected to the same treatment.

Responding, the judge directed the DSS to allow the IPOB leader enjoy some comfort.

Justice Nyako, however, informed the defence Counsel that a detention facility is not a five-star hotel.

“I don’t want to see him in these clothes again. This one is almost off-white. Also, make sure that you allow him to exercise,” Nyako said.

Kanu is facing charges bordering on terrorism and treasonable felony before Justice Nyako.

The Federal Government had on Monday night, filed new terrorism charges against the pro-Biafra agitator.
