DSS Restrict Nnamdi Kanu Lawyers, Journalists And Igbo Leaders From Entering Court Premises

A lot of scene was created in the Federal High of Abuja today Wednesday 10th November 2021, as the Department of State Services (DSS) operatives on Wednesday prevented Maxwell Opara, one of the lawyers of the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, from entering the Federal High Court in Abuja. Also restricted from the courtroom include Journalists, Igbo traditional leaders, as well as observers and human right activists.

But other lawyers of Nnamdi Kanu including Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Barr Aloy Ejimakor were allowed inside the courtroom. Justice Binta Nyako had adjourned Nnamdi Kanu’s trial to today 10th November 2021 after his last court sitting on 21st October 2021. Nnamdi Kanu is facing treason and terrorism-related charges and has since been detained in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since his re-arrest from a foreign country in June 2021.

He had pleaded not guilty to seven count charges at his last appearance in court on October 21st, 2021. Unfortunately, the case has been adjourned till January 19, 2022. It is very painful to his family members that they will spend the upcoming Christmas and New Year without Nnamdi Kanu, as the Biafra hero will be spending his Christmas and New Year at DSS custody.
