A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the remand of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra and founder of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, in prison custody.
Justice James Tsoho made the order on Wednesday after Kanu, who has since October 14, 2015 been in the custody of the Department of State Service, was arraigned along with two others on charges of treason and others bordering on his agitation for the secession of the Republic of Biafra from Nigeria.
Kanu was arraigned along with two others – Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi.
‎The judge in ordering the remand of the accused in prison overruled the request by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr. Mohammed Diri, for an order further remanding the accused persons in the custody of the DSS.
The ruling of the court ordering Kanu’s remand came as a relief to the defence team, led on Wednesday by Mr. Chuks Mouoma (SAN)‎, who had complained that the accused persons had been denied access to their families and lawyers since their arrest by the DSS on October 14, 2015.
‎Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Service since  October 14, 2015, the day he was arrested in a Lagos hotel, on the allegation that he was plotting the secession of Rpublic of Biafra from Nigeria.
The accused persons all pleaded not guilty to all the six counts preferred against them.
