Abuja (Sundiata Post) — Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and journalists were, on Wednesday, prevented from gaining entrance into the premises of the Federal High Court to witness the trial of the detained leader of the IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, by men of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).
Many of the judiciary correspondents, who had stormed the Court premises to observe the proceedings, met stiff resistance from the police officers, who were deployed to the Court from getting into the Court room.
Leader of the pro-Biafra group alongside three others, David Nwawuisi, Benjamin Madubugwu and Chidiebere Onwudiwe, are currently facing trial at the Court led by Justice Binta Nyako for terrorism charges.
Kanu, who doubles as the Director of Radio Biafra, has been incarcerated since 2015 when he was arrested by the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Lagos.
Earlier, a group of IPOB members stormed the Court in Jewish attires to witness the court case.
