Security operatives stationed at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday have barred journalists and lawyers from the trial of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu.
According to PM News, only lawyers involved in the trial of Kanu were permitted to enter the court premises.
Hooded officials of the Department of States Services, DSS, special police and civil defence operatives were deployed around the roads leading to the court premises.
The news medium also reported that many journalists were barred from going near the court premises.
Meanwhile, security operatives hit some reporters with sticks and pushed some, threatening to break the cameras of some journalists and other people recording the situation.
Some were reportedly forced to delete the videos and photos they recorded before chasing everyone away from the vicinity of the courts.
Trial is presently under way…
