Nnamdi Kanu is remanded in the custody of the DSS and his trial is postponed to November 10th.

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, has had his request to be transferred from DSS custody to the Kuje Correctional Service Centre refused by the Federal High Court in Abuja (IPOB). The court has refused Kanu’s request for the second time.
In July, the IPOB leader sought to be sent to prison, stating that he had been subjected to “mental and psychological assault” by the Department of State Services (DSS).

On Thursday, October 21, Kanu entered a not guilty plea in court to the federal government’s new seven-count indictment of treasonable felony and terrorism.

His principal lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, demanded that he be moved from DSS custody to Kuje jail.

The presiding court, Justice Binta Nyako, dismissed the application and delayed the case to November 10.

Kanu pleaded not guilty after being arraigned before a federal high court in Abuja.

Remember that the federal authorities recently upgraded the claims against him, expanding them from five to seven counts, including treasonable felony and terrorism.
