The Federal High Court in Abuja has taken a major decision on the stringent conditions imposed on the trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu. Against their last month decision, the court authorities have stopped the movement of the trial to the Code of Conduct Tribunal at Jabi District of Abuja.
Also, the authorities of the Court have permitted the media to witness the treasonable felony charges brought against the Biafra nation agitator by the Federal Government. At the time of this report, fully armed operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, have taken perfect control of the security situations within and outside the court premises.
Journalists, lawyers, litigants, as well as workers are being allowed into the court premises unhindered after formal introduction and presentation of identity cards.
The court had last month issued a Practice Direction which moved the trial to Code of Conduct Tribunal believed to be large and spacious enough to accommodate the crowd that usually surged to witness the trial.
The Practice Direction endorsed by the Chief Judge of the Court, Justice John Tsoho had also prohibited media coverage except those permitted cover the trial.
