Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial: Sowore Along With Other Journalists, Lawyers Barred From Courtroom
Security operatives have barred activist Omoyele Sowore from accessing the courtroom to witness the trial of Nnamdi Kanu.
Sowore who was dressed in traditional Isi-agu attire was told to go back by operatives of the Department of State Services and the Nigerian Police Force.
Sowore who spoke to journalists said he was at the court for a number of reasons.
He said, “I am here to check the registry because for a while I have not been charged to court, I need to know about my treason case.
“Also I am here to witness the trial of my friend, Nnamdi Kanu, the court is a public space and the public should not be barred from accessing the courtroom.
“People have the right to self-determination, Nigeria has not worked and will never work. So Nnamdi Kanu is not wrong and his trial should not be in secret.
“Security operatives have consistently failed to do their jobs and now you see them harassing journalists and lawyers.
Journalists and lawyers who were also present at the High Court in Abuja were barred from the court premises by security operatives.
