Radio Biafra: DSS Secures Order To Detain Kanu For Another 90 Days

The Department of the State Service (DSS) has secured an order of the Federal High Court, Abuja, to detain the leader of the Biafran Republic agitators, Mr Nnamdi Kanu for another 90 days.

The 90-day grace granted the security outfit was to enable investigation into the allegation of acts of terrorism and financing of terrorism levelled against the Biafran leader by the federal government.

Counsel to the DSS, Mr Moses Idakwo, at the resumption of trial of Kanu yesterday in Abuja, drew the attention of Chief Magistrate Shuaib Usman, to the federal high court order of Justice Adeniyi Ademola, granting further detention of Kanu for another 90 days.

Idakwo therefore asked the magistrate court to step down from the trial of Kanu on the ground that the court lacked power to prosecute terrorism charges.

The Biafran leader was however, produced in court in compliance with last week's order of the magistrate court but with heavy security escort.

Counsel to the accused person, Mr Vincent Egechukwu Obeta, objected to the order of the court and the application that the magistrate court steps down from Kanu's trial.
