Heavy Security As Trial of Nnamdi Kanu Recommences
Recent reports have shown that security has been deployed to the premises of the Federal high court in Abuja ahead of the prosecution of the leader of the people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu on Monday 26th of July.
The Biafran leader who has been accused of promoting terrorism is currently in the detention of the Department of State Services. The Federal government has put plans in place to ensure that the trial is hitch-free.
The deployment of security officials was to prevent likely breaches in security during the trial. The massive turnout of IPOB followers has prompted DSS officials to take positions in different parts of the Court’s premises.
Nnamdi Kanu is facing an 11 count charge of treason, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms.
The Senate minority leader, Senator Enyinaya Abaribe, however, made a statement that he would stand as surety for Nnamdi again should the need arise. He made the statement on Wednesday, July 21 during an interview on TVC’s Journalist hangout.
