Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, lost his petition to be transferred to the Kuje Correctional Centre on Thursday.

Kanu’s appeal to be transferred from the Kuje Correctional Centre to a DSS prison was denied by Justice Binta Nyako of the Abuja Federal High Court.

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, his lawyer, asked the court to transfer the pro-Biafra agitator from DSS detention to Kuje jail.

However, Ejiofor’s application was denied by the trial court, Justice Nyako.

Kanu’s request has been denied for the second time by the court.

In July, the IPOB leader requested that he be transferred to the prison, claiming that he had been “subjected to mental and psychological torture” by the Department of State Services (DSS), but his request was denied.

As a result, Justice Nyako delayed the case till November 10 to hear the competency of the allegations brought against him by the Federal Government.

Nyako, on the other hand, ruled that three people of Kanu’s choosing be permitted to visit him every Thursday.
