The trial of leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has resumed at the Federal High Court in Abuja amidst tight security. Before the arrival of the separatist activist, a combined team of security operatives surrounded in and around the court premises. The gun wielding security operatives had prevented Journalists, lawyers and staff of the FHC from entering the Court premises, a situation the defence lawyers described as uncalled for and unnecessary. Kanu is facing charges bordering on treasonable felony, he was earlier granted bail in April 2017 on a health ground but skipped bail after flouting some of the conditions given to him by the court. He later left Nigeria after soldiers raided his father’s residence in Abia state in November 2017 but later rearrested in Kenya by the security operatives and brought back to Nigeria to face his trial.
