• DSS vs lawyers: Nnamdi Kanu engages official in shouting bout 

The trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has been adjourned till January 19 and 20, 2022.

This was after he appeared before Justice Binta Nyako Federal at a Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday.

Reports said that the IPOB leader’s lawyers had earlier staged a walkout before the presiding judge.

The IPOB leader and his lawyers were said to have protested the refusal of the Department of State Services, DSS, to allow some lawyers access into the Abuja Federal High Court.

DSS brought Kanu into the court at about 9:52 am.

The secret police had barred lawyers, journalists, and traditional rulers from entering the court building as his trial resumed.

DSS also denied delegates of the Igbo Traditional Rulers access to the court building.

The traditional rulers are in Abuja in solidarity with the IPOB leader, whose late father was an Eze in Afaraukwu, Umuahia, the Abia State capital.

Kanu is being tried before Justice Binta Nyako-led court by the Nigerian Government for charges bordering on terrorism.

He was rearrested in June in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria to face his trial.
