The Federal High Court in Abuja has again refused the request of the self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu to wear the Igbo traditional attire,“isi agu” while in custody.


Justice James Omotoso delivering judgment on Thursday held that Kanu’s application lacked merit and consequently refused it.


The Court stated that the denial of wearing the Igbo traditional attire does not amount to a violation of human rights as alleged by the applicant.

According to the court, the IPOB leader has failed to prove his assertion to be granted the reliefs he sought in his suit.


Justice Omotoso said there was nothing on record before the court to show that he was discriminated against or that other inmates enjoyed any form of privileges or rights than the applicant.
