Nnamdi Kanu and Omoleye Sowore

Omoyele Sowore has been arrested at the Federal High Court Abuja as the court resumed the trial of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, Celebritiesng has learnt.

It was gathered that security agents picked up the ‘Buhari-must-go’ activist on the court premises during a Facebook Live session on Monday morning.

 

It was earlier reported that there is tight security around the court as the trial of Kanu, who has been in the custody of the Department of State Service resumed today.

Kanu, who was earlier extradited into Nigeria from a foreign country, is facing terrorism-related charges before Justice Binta Nyako.

Journalists at the entrance to the court are barred by DSS officers from entering the court on the ground that they were not accredited to cover the trial.

We also gathered that the secret police barred some media organisations from covering the trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, as his trial continues today.

The Guardian, Punch, Vanguard, Daily Trust, Tribune, Daily Sun, The Cable, and Daily Times, among others were barred. Sowore’s Sahara Reporters was also barred.

The media organisations the DSS accredited are Daily Post, ThisDay, Premium Times, The Nation, Daily Independent, The Herald, National Television Authority, Television Continental, African Independent Television and Channels Television.

The DSS did not give reasons for picking 10 media houses while barring others from covering the trial.

A call to the DSS spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunnaya, rang out, while a text message sent to him on the action of the secret police had yet to be responded to as of the time of writing this report.

The trial of Nnamdi has just been postponed.

More details soon.
