IPOB leader Kanu defies judge, wears Fendi designer cloth to court

Nnamdi Kanu 1

On Wednesday, the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu, reappeared in court in the same Fendi designer cloth he wore on Monday, defying Justice Binta Nyako.

On Monday, the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court had ordered Mr Kanu not to wear the same attire he has since worn for all his trials after his re-arrest in June 2021.

“I don’t want to see him in these cloths again. This one is almost off-white,” the judge had demanded.

However, counsel to the attorney general of the federation (AGF) Abubakar Malami, Shuaibu Labaran, told the judge that Mr Kanu disobeyed the court order.

“The case is adjourned until today for arraignment. But before then, I crave the indulgence of your Lordship because you gave an order that the defendant should not appear in this cloth,” he stated. “But the defendant (Kanu) chose to wear the same clothes because it is a designer.”

Mr Labaran also informed the court that the DSS had complied with the court order by procuring an orthopaedic mattress and pillows for the IPOB leader to make him comfortable in detention.

But Mr Kanu’s, Mike Ozekhome, disagreed his client refused to wear other cloths.

He said though they got him a set of other cloths before finishing the day’s activities on Monday, it was a bit late, and they could not hand them over to him.

He assured that Mr Kanu would appear in other clothes next time.

Mr Ozekhome commended the SSS for complying with the court order by procuring the orthopaedic mattress and pillows for his client to make him comfortable.

Mrs Nyako said the cloths could be handed to the legal officer that came with the security outfit.

Buhari’s dictator background saved Nigeria from collapse: Gov. Ayade

Cross River Governor Ben Ayade says President Muhammadu Buhari’s military background saved the country from collapse, but Nigerians don’t know. 

“Perhaps, if it was not Buhari’s administration with his military background, the country would have collapsed at this stage,” Mr Ayade said, though Nigeria insecurity has worsened since Mr Buhari assumed power in 2015.

Mr Ayade, who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to APC last year, further claimed that Nigerians were ignorant of the danger Mr Buhari had saved Nigeria. 

“People don’t know that because if you have been able to avoid risk, Mr Ayade explained, “nobody can see it because it was avoided. I think the situation could have been worse.” 

Boko Haram and bandits have continued to kill and kidnap for ransom, while agitations for secession continue to threaten Nigeria’s unity. 

Last week, bandits killed over 200 Nigerians in communities in Zamfara. 

Governor Abubakar Sani Bello disclosed that over 200 citizens had been killed and more than 200 abducted in 17 in Niger.
