Nnamdi Kanu (dressed in white) in court
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, on Thursday lost his bid to be moved to the Kuje Correctional Centre.
Kanu’s request to be moved from the Kuje Correctional Centre from the Department of State Service, DSS, facility was rejected by Justice Binta Nyako of the Abuja Federal High Court.
His counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, prayed the court to transfer the pro-Biafra agitator from the DSS custody to Kuje prison.
But the trial judge, Justice Nyako, rejected Ejiofor’s application.
Justice Nyako consequently adjourned the matter till November 10.
This is the second time Kanu’s request has been turned down by the court.
In July, the IPOB leader asked to be moved to the prison, alleging that he had been “subjected to mental and psychological torture” by the Department of State Services (DSS).
