Tension as Nnamdi Kanu clash with DSS operative inside Court premises

Access Bank
The leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on Wednesday clashed with an operative of the Department of State Service (DSS).

The clash was as a result of the refusal of security operatives to allow some of Nnamdi Kanu’s legal representatives access into the court.

Angered by the restriction, the pro-Biafra activist protested the refusal before a DSS official.

DSS brought Kanu into the court at about 9:52 am.

Reporters, lawyers and other observers have been barred from covering the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The journalists who had arrived at the court premises as early as 6am, were denied access to the courtroom by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

It was learned that reporters from print and broadcast stations were turned back by hooded DSS officers and other security agents who barricaded all routes leading to the court.
