Federal High Court in Abuja Remands Nnamdi Kanu in DSS Custody, as his trial case of treason and terrorism was adjourned till November 10, 2021. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who was arraigned before a judge of an Abuja Federal High court pleaded Not Guilty to the amended 7 counts of treason and terrorism filed against him by the FG.
He will remanded in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) after his request to be moved from DSS custody to Kuje Correctional Service Centre was rejected by the court. 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).
At the court session on Thursday, October 21, Kanu pleaded not guilty to an amended seven-count charge bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism preferred against him by the federal government.
Ifeanyi Ejiofor, his lead counsel, asked the court to transfer him from the custody of the DSS to Kuje prison. The presiding judge, Justice Binta Nyako, refused the application and adjourned the case till November 10.
