The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has appeared before the Federal High Court for the continuation of his trial in the same Fendi wear the judge ordered him to change.

Justice Binta Nyako had during the hearing on January 18 ordered that Kanu be allowed to change his clothes, practice his Jewish faith, and have access to family members in the detention facility.

The order followed a complaint by lead defence counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), that his client’s fundamental human rights were being breached in custody.

Ozekhome, who questioned whether the Fendi, which the defendant was repatriated with from Kenya, had become a uniform.

“He is worn out psychologically, mentally traumatized, physically humiliated, and debilitated.

“So, it is not a fair trial,” Ozekhome said.

Kanu is facing 15-counts amended charges bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism filed by the federal government.
