The Federal High Court, Abuja, has ordered the Department of State Service, DSS, to immediately effect the release of the detained Director of Radio Biafra and leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

The Justice Adeniyi Ademola led Federal High Court ruled on Thursday that the continued incarceration of Kanu by the DSS was unlawful.

It would be recalled that Kanu was yesterday discharged by Shuaibu Usman of the magistrate court in Wuse II, Abuja, of all counts of criminal conspiracy, intimidation and leading an unlawful society brought against him by the federal government.

The government through DSS had opted to withdraw the case at the lower court for a higher court, which has jurisdiction to entertain charges bordering on terrorism.

The DSS has had the IPOB leader incarcerated for at least 90 days despite an order granting him bail in October. It had sought an order of the Federal High Court, Abuja, to keep Kanu in detention.
