Ahead of the trial of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the Nigerian government has deployed operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) to the premises of the Federal High Court, Maitama in Abuja.

The IPOB leader, who is standing trial before the Justice Binta Nyako Federal High Court, Abuja, face nine charges bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony, amongst others.

A detachment of hooded armed officers were seen stationed at the entrance of the Federal High Court with motorbikes and vehicles preventing human and vehicular movements into the area.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami had earlier warned members of the IPOB not to show up at the Court hearing today, Monday, July 26th, 2021.

Also, people in various hotels in the area are being prevented from moving in and out as the officers insisted that they were on a special operation in the area and appealed to them for understanding.

Meanwhile, DSS has limited the number of media houses that can cover the trial of the IPOB leader.

A list of media house posted on Facebook by the leader of #RevolutionNow group and publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore revealed that only 10 media outfits are accredited to cover the trial.

“#FreeNnamdiKanuNow Lawless DSS had “accredited” only 10 media houses to cover @MaziNnamdiKanu trial, it will be a shame and a crime against #freepress for any independent news source to apply to DSS for accreditation. This is highly condemnable and embarrassing! Below is the satanic list” Sowore posted on Facebook.
