Commotion in court as DSS bars unaccredited lawyers from accessing court

DSS DSS

There is commotion at the Federal High Court in Abuja where the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamd Kanu is to be tried on treason charges.

The lawyers numbering over 500 are being turned back at the main gate of the court on the ground that they were not accredited for the case.

Tempers rose when the lawyers sought to use raw power to force their way into the court.

Stern looking DSS operatives, however, resisted and blocked the legal practitioners from having their way.

At the time of this report, a serious shouting match is going on, with the lawyers condemning the action of the security agents.

Meanwhile, former Anambra State governor, Chief Chukuemeka Ezeife who is standing for Ohanaeze Ndigbo to watch the trial, is addressing the lawyers who are mainly from South-East Region.
