The federal high court in Abuja has granted an order for the Department of State Services (DSS) to remand Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), till July 26.
The court reportedly granted the order on Tuesday morning when Kanu was re-arraigned on charges bordering on alleged treason.
The presiding judge, Binta Nyako stated that he is to be remanded in DSS custody pending the continuation of his trial.
Kanu appeared in court without any member of his defense team.
Shuaibu Labaran, the federal government’s counsel, informed the court during the proceedings that Kanu, was arrested because he jumped bail.
Labaran stated that having produced Kanu, the court should allow the DSS to detain him, a request which Nyako granted and adjourned the trial till July 26.
