Nnamdi Kanu: Tight security at Federal High Court as IPOB leader returns to court

There is tight security at the Federal High Court, Abuja, as the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, is produced to face his trial, today.

Recall that there was a similar security deployment at the court premises on October 21 when the secessionist was brought to the court to continue his trial.

The move for heavy security personnel at the court premises and its surroundings on Wednesday was to forestall security breaches during the hearing.

The entrances leading to the court premises were barricaded by combined armed officers of the Department of State Services (DSS) operatives, the Army, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence and the Nigeria Police.

Vehicles were not allowed into the court.

However, court staff and journalists, whose names are on the list for the coverage, are allowed access into the building as at the time of filing this report.

Although five media houses would be given access into the courtroom out of the list presented to the DSS operatives, a number of media practitioners would be asked to stay at the media Centre at the court basement.
