Nnamdi Kanu arrives Federal high court amid tight security

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has arrived the premises of the Federal High Court, Abuja for his trial.

Although his pictures could not be taken, he was however believed to be among a convoy of about six vehicles that drove into the court premises around 8am on Thursday morning by operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS).

The convoy was led by a black Prado jeep, followed by two Hilux, two buses and other two other Hilux.

Before his arrival, security operatives including DSS, Nigerian Army, Police and the NSCDC had barred journalists and other lawyers from gaining access into the court.

Even staff of the Federal High Court had to alight from their staff bus to be screened before they were allowed to go in.
