Security operatives at the Federal High Court on Thursday prevented journalists from entering the courtroom to witness the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Mr. Kanu’s trial had on December 13 been suspended abruptly following a rowdy session created by him and other defendants.

The trial was scheduled to continue today.

Mr. Kanu, and three others, David Nwawuisi, Benjamin Madubugwu and Chidiebere Onwudiwe, are facing trial for alleged treasonable felony.

The trial had in the past experienced a high presence of IPOB supporters who gathered outside the court chanting various anti-government slogans.

The security operatives, who had vowed to ensure tight security at the venue of the trial, said they needed to get instructions first before allowing journalists into the venue.

The operatives had on Tuesday compiled a list of journalists which they claimed would be used in allowing reporters into the court for Thursday’s session.

That list was ignored on Thursday.

A few journalists were later allowed inside while majority of the reporters, including that of PREMIUM TIME’S, were prevented.

The operatives told the other reporters that they would await further instructions before allowing the journalists into the court. That instruction was being awaited at the time of this report.

Details later…

    Nothing short of kangaroo secret trial will please Mohamed Buhari and his parasitic gang.

    • kadir mumuni

      Buhari is a failure, and God will judge him soon.

      • kadir mumuni

        He will die soon with this economic recession he has brought to Nigeria

        • kadir mumuni

          Burhari is a DEMON, MONSTER to Nigerians

          • aboki

            Kadir you may not die ko?
            You dont have to faked your identity!

  • evidence

    They claim to have evidence against Kanu but they don’t want the world to see the evidence.
    Blood thirsty tyrant.

  • Call to AVENGERS

    The Niger Delta Avengers should begin the much talked about ‘Operation wall of Jericho’ and ‘Hurrican Joshua’ without delay. Buhari and his gang must not be allowed to continue this macabre dance of shame and mockery of democracy. We are not in a barracks and there must be a response that will speak some sense into the dumb. That response can only be from the AVENGERS and this is what we expect of them. Pls don’t disappoint us. The time to act is now. Action!!!

  • Decimator

    Why should Kanu´s legal team continue to cooperate with the court in such a hide and seek trial? May be Mohammadu Buhari is one of the scheduled witnesses to testify behind the screen today, thus the need to avoid journalists.

  • tony H

    You all have “king Buhari” you wanted so much.

    • kadir mumuni

      i never wanted that MONSTER

      • kadir mumuni

        Burhari is a KIng of the MONSTERS, and not the King of NIGERIANS

        • kadir mumuni

          Release Nnamdi kanu Burhari or you will face the rot of GOD

        • tony H
