While ordering the remand of the accused in prison, the judge overruled a request by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr. Diri, for an order further remanding the accused persons in the custody of the DSS.

“Having considered all submissions and application before the court and relying on the constitution, an accused person should be remanded in prison custody,” Justice Tsoho said.

Mr Kanu, who was arrested by the DSS since October 2015, was arraigned along with Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi. The accused persons however pleaded not guilty to all the six counts preferred against them.
