Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, may not have gotten his bail request granted, but the Court has ordered the DSS to allow him watch his favourite club, Liverpool matches, anytime according to NAN report.
With Liverpool reaching the final of the UEFA Champions League where they face Real Madrid on May 28, the IPOB leader will be relaxed to watch the clash.
The order came when the presiding judge jokingly asked Kanu's Lawyer Mike Ozekhome if he was a Liverpool fan and he gave a positive response.
Nyako then said she was also a fan of Liverpool F.C. She went further and asked Kanu if he was a fan of Chelsea Football Club, going by the designer’s clothes he keeps wearing to court.
“What is your team?” she asked. Kanu gently stood up in the dock and said: “My team is Liverpool even from the age of seven”.
The judge then told the DSS legal director, who was in court, to always allow Kanu to watch the matches of his favourite football club.
“You must allow the defendant to watch the matches any day they are playing,” she said, adding that she was going to make an order to that effect.
In their response, the DSS official, however, said his office had always given him access to watch Liverpool matches.
Liverpool who have won the League Cup and FA Cup will play their final league match on Sunday against Wolves, before facing 13-times champion Real Madrid on May 28.
