DSS Secures Order to Detain Nnamdi Kanu for Another 90 Days

The Department of State Services, yesterday claimed that it has the right to detain IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu for another 90 days.

The DSS, through its lawyer, Mr Moses Idakwo, told the court that it has already secured an order granted by Justice Ademola Adeniyi, of the Federal High Court in Abuja to further detain Kanu for another 90 days.

It said that the order was to enable the government to conclude investigation into an allegation that Kanu was involved in terrorism financing.

Consequently, the DSS, yesterday, applied to withdraw the initial First Information Report, FIR, it lodged against Kanu before the Chief Magistrate Court.

The agency maintained that the government would file a fresh charge against Kanu before a higher court, once its ongoing investigation is concluded.

The application was vehemently opposed by Kanus lawyer Obeta, who insisted that the bail earlier granted the accused person must firstly be complied with before any application for transfer of the case to a federal high court could be entertained.

The case was adjourned to December 1 for ruling.
