A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra and founder of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, who is being accused of treason, to be the remanded in prison custody.
Kanu was arraigned in court on Wednesday alongside two others – Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi.
Justice James Tsoho who ordered the remand of the accused, overruled the request of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr. Mohammed Diri, for an order further remanding them in the custody of the Department of States Service (DSS).
He therefore asked the court to send Kanu to prison so that his family could have access to him.
The accused persons all pleaded not guilty to all the six counts preferred against them.
