Pro-democracy campaigner, Omoyele Sowore, has been arrested by operatives of the Nigeria Police Force at the Federal High Court Abuja as the court resumed the trial of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The PUNCH reports that Sowore, publisher of SaharaReporters, was picked up on the court premises during a Facebook Live session on Monday morning.
We earlier reported that operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) stationed at the court on Monday had barred some media organisations, from covering the trial of Nnamdi Kanu.
Recall that Kanu, who was earlier extradited into Nigeria from Kenya, is facing terrorism-related charges before Justice Binta Nyako.
The Organisations barred include ThePunch, Guardian, Vanguard, Daily Trust, Tribune, Daily Sun, The Cable, and Daily Times, and Sowore’s Sahara Reporters among others.
Those accredited by the DSS are DailyPost, ThisDay, Premium Times, TheNation, Daily Independent, The Herald, National Television Authority, Television Continental, African Independent Television, and Channels Television.
