Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has had his appeal to be transferred from DSS custody to Kuje Correctional Service Centre denied by a Federal High Court in Abuja. Kanu’s request has been denied for the second time by the court.

In July, the IPOB leader requested to be transferred to the prison, claiming that the Department of State Services had subjected him to “mental and psychological abuse" (DSS).

Kanu pled not guilty to an upgraded seven-count allegation of treasonable felony and terrorism brought by the federal government against him in court on Thursday, October 21.

His lead lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, urged the court to transfer him from DSS custody to Kuje jail.

Justice Binta Nyako, the presiding judge, denied the application and delayed the hearing to November 10.
