JUST IN: ‘I don’t want to see him in these clothes again’ — judge hits DSS over Nnamdi Kanu’s outfit

Justice Binta Nyako has expressed her displeasure at the constant outfit Nnamdi Kanu wears to the courtroom during his hearing.

Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, is standing trial for various offenses including a treasonable felony at the federal high court in Abuja.

Previously, Nyako had directed the DSS to allow the IPOB leader to have a bath whenever he wants to, change his clothes, eat properly and practice his faith.

However, at the court session on Tuesday, Mike Ozekhome, Kanu’s lead counsel, complained that his client is still being subjected to poor treatment in DSS custody.

He said Kanu is still being kept in solitary confinement and that any other detainee who greets him is also kept in solitary confinement.

Shortly before adjourning the matter, Nyako reminded the defendant that a detention facility is not a five-star hotel.

However, she reiterated her previous order that the IPOB leader should be allowed the maximum comfort possible, including changing his Fendi outfit with which he was brought back into the country in June 2021.

“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 added.
