‘He chose to wear it’, DSS defends Nnamdi Kanu’s reappearance in Fendi clothes

The Department of State Service (DSS) has defended the reason why Nnamdi Kanu reappeared in court on Wednesday in the same Fendi clothes Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja had ordered to have changed.

When the matter was called up on Wednesday, the Prosecution counsel, Mr Shuaibu Labaran, told the court that Kanu was the one that chose to wear his designer Fendi clothes.

He said: “My lord, based on your order yesterday, we provided the Defendant with a new Orthopedic mattress, pillows and blankets.

“As for his appearance, he chose to wear this particular one because he said that it is designers”.

In his response, Kanu’s lead counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN, told the court that it was not true that his client insisted on wearing his designers clothes.

“My lord what happened was that by the time proceedings ended yesterday, and because it was not his visiting day, we were not able to pass to him, some clothes we obtained for him.

“We even discussed it with him this morning and he said that on the next visiting day he would want to have the new clothes”, Ozekhome added.

Nnamdi Kanu is facing a 15-count charge bordering on terrorism and treasonable felony.

His lead counsel, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, had on Tuesday drawn the attention of the Judge to the treatment his client was being subjected to in the custody of the DSS.
