NNAMDI KANU, IN HANDCUFFS NEXT TIME?
Icheoku recalls that the first time Olisa Metuh appeared in court from the custody of the EFCC, he was not in handcuffs? The judge remanded him to Kuje prison from where he was brought to court shackled. So now that IPOB putative leader Nnamdi Kanu has been similarly remanded to Kuje Prison, who knows whether the next time he will appear in court if he will not in like manner be handcuffed?
Icheoku is not just playing prophetic but analytical; and judging from what happened with respect to Olisa Metuh, Icheoku will not be surprised if suddenly Nnamdi Kanu became "combative" requiring his being restrained according to Kuje Prison officials. But hey, hearing in his matter resumes January 22 when application for bail will be argued; and the world, alongside with Icheoku will be watching to see if a pattern develops. Icheoku commends the engagement of Chuks Mouma, SAN, as the new lead counsel for Nnamdi Kanu, considering the political nature of the case as well as the seriousness of the charge.
