Contrary to the order of Justice Nyako of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Kanu showed up before the court, wearing the same designer clothes he had on him since June 2021 when he was arrested.

Justice Nyako had on Tuesday, ordered the Nigerian secret police, the Department of State Services (DSS), to allow Kanu to have a change of clothes.

But when the matter was called up, the prosecution counsel, Mr. Shuaibu Labaran, told the court that he (Kanu) was the one who chose to wear his designer clothes.

Shuaibu Labaran added that the DSS has provided Kanu with a new Orthopedic mattress, pillows, and blankets.

In response, Kanu’s lead counsel, Mike Ozekhome, told the court that it was not true that his client insisted on wearing his designer clothes as it was not his visiting day, on Tuesday, so, fresh clothes couldn’t be passed to him.

He added that clothes will be passed to him on his next visiting day.

Ozekhome, however, commended the DSS for providing the IPOB leader with new mattresses and pillows.

Before allowing Kanu to be re-arraigned on the amended 15-count charge relating to treasonable felony, Justice Nyako reiterated her demand for the defendant to have a change of clothes.

Kanu, thereafter, entered his plea to the fresh amended charge against him which borders on his alleged commission of acts of terrorism, felony, incitement, unlawful importation of a radio transmitter, and headship of an illegal organization.
