Justice Adeniyi of Federal High Court, Abuja had on December 17, ordered for the release of Citizen Nnamdi Kanu,from the custody of the DSS based on the applications for fundamental rights enforcement by the defendant counsel.

Justice Ahmed Mohamed who took charge of the case in Federal High Court Abuja, exempted himself from the case when the defendant Citizen Nnamdi Kanu stated in Court that "He won't be trialed by a Judge who won't let Justice prevail and also by a  Court, where its ruling is not been obeyed". Justice John Tsoho had the case transferred to him and ruled on the 29th of January that Citizen Nnamdi Kanu shouldn't be granted bail, but will remain in Kuje Prison Custody.
