Court Orders DSS To Release Kanu

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday ordered the Department of State Service to release a pro-Biafra leader, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu,‎ from its custody.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola while ruling on a bail application filed by Kanu held that his continued detention without any pending charges against him is contrary to the provisions of section 35(4) of the Constitution.

He also set aside last month’s order, permitting the DSS to keep Kanu in its custody for 90 days.

The judge ruled that Kanu’s continued detention for over two months showed that the DSS lacked‎ sufficient material to prosecute the Radio Biafra chief or was still undecided on what to do with him.
