Biafra has come to stay says Nnamdi Kanu’s brother
A Federal High Court in Abuja on December 17, 2015 ordered the Department of State Service, DSS, to release the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.
According to the court, the continued detention of Kanu after two months without trial, violates Section 158 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 and Section 35 of the 1999 Constitution.
Justice Ademola said there was no law permitting the DSS or any other security agency to detain any Nigerian beyond two months without any concrete move to try such person before a competent court.
The judge said available facts before him showed that the DSS was not minded to release Kanu on bail.
He therefore ordered the DSS to immediately grant unconditional bail to the applicant.
