The Department of State Services, DSS, on Wednesday barred journalists from entering the Federal High Court, Abuja as the trial of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, continues today.
This is also as lawyers and Igbo traditional rulers were barred from gaining entrance into the court room.
But other lawyers of Kanu including Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Aloy Ejimakor were allowed inside the courtroom.
The traditional rulers are in Abuja in solidarity to the IPOB leader, whose late father was an Eze in Afaraukwu, Unuahia, the Abia State capital.
Nnamdi Kanu is being tried for treason, and has been in the custody of the DSS since his re-arrest in Kenya, in June.
