Metro Abuja Court Bars Journalists, Visitors From Observing Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial



Federal High Court in Abuja has barred reporters from covering the trial of the self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

There is huge presence of security personnel at the trial of the pro-Biafra leader taking place at the Federal High Court, with the officials denying journalists and visitors entry.

Only close family members are allowed into the court by security operatives.


No reason was given for this decision by the court but recently it was reported that the trial of the self-acclaimed IPOB leader would be done behind the camera, a move that Mr Kanu had protested.

Mr Kanu is standing trial on a three-count charge of criminal conspiracy, intimidation and belonging to an unlawful society.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
