Embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has reportedly arrived the Federal High Court in Abuja for the commencement of his trail amid tight security.
According to reports, the IPOB leader was transported to the court premises in an enclosed Hilux van while an open Hilux with prison officers and other security officials mostly armed followed closely.
However, reports say journalists who arrived the venue of the trial as early as 7:30am were prevented from gaining entrance into the court premises to cover the trial.
According to Abraham Achida, a photojournalist; “We have been here since 7.30 am and they said we cannot go in there unless we have the Federal High Court tag”.
The new development may not be unconnected to recent claims made by IPOB that the Nigerian government, in collaboration with its British counterpart was planning to eliminate the Biafra agitator.
