Nigeria Department of State Services, DSS has failed to produce the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu before the Federal High Court Abuja.
Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court gave the order on Monday during the resumption of Kanu’s trial in Abuja.
In an application to the judge, Mr Kanu had argued that he cannot get a fair trial if he remains in the custody of the DSS.
He also sought an order to grant him access to his medical doctor for the purpose of carrying out a comprehensive independent medical examination on him.
In her verdict, Justice Nyako ordered that the DSS should allow access to Mr Kanu, although it won’t be a free-for-all.
With Mr Kanu absent in court, the judge adjourned the trial to October 21.
The DSS said Mr Kanu’s absence in court was due to logistics reasons.
