Nnamdi Kanu Remanded In DSS Custody Till July 26

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has been remanded in the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS) by a Federal High Court in Abuja until July 26.

Kanu was apprehended and flown back to Nigeria on Sunday.

On Tuesday, he was re-arrested by Justice Binta Nyako.

In 2017, Nyako was the judge who granted him bail on medical reasons.

But Kanu flouted the bail, forcing the judge to revoke it eventually.

He eventually fled abroad but continued to incite his followers who floated the Eastern Security Network, an armed wing of IPOB.

On Tuesday, counsel to the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Shuaibu Labaran, told the court that the defendant (Kanu) had been arrested and produced in court.

Labaran urged the court for an order detaining the arrested IPOB leader at the DSS facility pending the hearing and determination of the matter.

Justice Nyako, who granted the plea, adjourned the matter until July 26 for trial continuation.
