DSS Has Refused To Allow Kanu Change His Cloth – Lawyer

Listen to article

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, counsel to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu on Friday, alleged that the Department of State Services, DSS, has refused the Biafra agitator from changing his clothes contrary to a court order.

Ejiofor claimed that DSS refused Kanu from changing his clothes despite a court order to that effect.

He insisted that the DSS refusal was a violation of the subsisting court order.

Recall that Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court had ordered the secret police to allow Kanu to change his clothes.

The judge had said she was tired of seeing the IPOB leader in the same clothes during court proceedings.

Responding, the Nigerian Government had said Kanu has refused to change his clothes.

Kanu had continued to appear in the same clothes during his court outings.

However, Ejiofor stressed that DSS is responsible for Kanu appearing in the same outfit.

Addressing journalists in Owerri, Imo State, Ejiofor vowed to protest against the actions of DSS.

He said: ‘Extensive interaction was held with him on mainly legal issues, as well as other engaging related matters.

‘Though, for reasons we were not told, the officials of the DSS rejected for the umpteenth time, the change of clothes brought to him’.

‘We, however, protested against this obvious violation of court order, and insisted on seeing the Head of the appropriate department to lodge our complaint, but Onyendu advised that we should take up the infractions at the appropriate forum in view of the fact that a positive order of court was flouted’ he submitted.

The IPOB leader is expected to appear in court next week for the continuation of his trial.
