The Department of State Services (DSS) has on Wednesday revealed that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, cannot wear his choice of clothes because they are embroiled with ‘Lion head’.
This came after the IPOB leader lawyer’s, Mike Ozekhome complained to the court that the DSS have refused to allow Kanu a change of clothes contrary to a definite order of the court that he must be allowed to wear a new outfit.
Nnamdi Kanu was again seen in Fendi clothes as he resumed with some of his lawyers and family at the Federal High Court in Abuja, on Wednesday.
Recall that Justice Binta Nyako had ordered that he be allowed to change his outfit before his next appearance in court.
Responding to Ozekhome’s complaint, the judge asked the Director of Legal Services of the DSS to provide explanations to the issue.
“My Lord, clothes that were brought for the defendant had lion’s head embroiled on them, and the defendant (Mr Kanu) can’t wear clothes with a lion’s head,” he said.
The secret service’s lawyer explained that “clothes with lion’s head offend the standard operating procedures” of the SSS.
The judge then asked the type of cloth Kanu prefers to wear.
In response, Kanu said, “I want to wear the clothes of my people, “Isi Agu.”
The court, however, refused his request, but asked the DSS to provide Kanu with his eyes glasses which his lawyers said was taken away from him.
