Nnamdi Kanu with his legal team at a federal high court in Abuja on 18/01/2022.

Justice Binta Nyako on Tuesday registered her displeasure over the outfit of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).

At the last sitting in November, Mrs Nyako had ordered the State Security Service (SSS) to allow Mr Kanu change the clothes he has been wearing since he was renditioned back to the country last year June.

The separatist leader wore a Fendi outfit throughout the days he was brought to the court last year. His lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had told the court that his client was being subjected to inhumane treatments and not allowed to practice his Jewish faith.

The judge ordered the secret police notorious for intimidating government critics to allow him limited liberty.

Thereafter, Peter Afunanya, spokesman of the SSS, denied the separatist leader was being maltreated, adding that Kanu was enjoying luxury in detention.

At the court sitting today, the judge queried why Kanu is still wearing the clothes he has been appearing on since he was abducted from Kenya.

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