Please Transfer Me To A Prison, Kanu Begs As Court Orders Him To Be Detained For Another 90 Days


For Nnamdi Kanu, it is still a long walk to freedom as the Department of the State Security (DSS) has secured an order of the Federal High Court, Abuja, to detain him for another 90 days. DSS also asked the Magistrate Court, currently handling his criminal conspiracy case, to hands off his trial on the grounds that it lacked jurisdiction to adjudicate on terrorism cases.
The 90 days extension was granted to enable investigation into allegations of acts of terrorism and financing of terrorism leveled against him by the FG. After the investigation, the FG would file a fresh charge against him before a higher court.
Meanwhile, at the court yesterday, Kanu begged, to no avail, to be transferred to a prison custody. His lawyer, Vincent Egechukwu Obeta, also insisted that transferring his client to prison would enable him to have easy access to his legal team….. he was like “abeg ooo, abeg” in Orezi’s voice……
