The Federal High Court, Abuja, has ordered that three people should be allowed to visit in custody, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, only on Thursdays.
Justice Binta Nyako, the trial judge, however rejected application that Kanu, leader of Indigenous Peoples Of Biafra, IPOB, be moved from DSS custody to Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja.
Kanu’s Counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had requested the court to transfer Kanu from DSS custody to Kuje prison.
Justice Nyako adjourned the matter till November 10 to hear the competency of the charges preferred against Kanu by the Nigerian government.
Recall that in July, the IPOB leader had requested to be moved to a prison facility, alleging that he had been “subjected to mental and psychological torture” by the DSS, a request which was also turned down.
