JUST IN: Federal High Court Changes Decision On Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial

The Federal High Court in Abuja has backed down on the harsh restrictions set on the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

The court officials have halted the transfer of the case to the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, in Abuja’s Jabi District, notwithstanding their ruling last month.

In addition, the Court’s authorities have allowed the media to witness the Federal Government’s treasonous criminal allegations against the Biafra nation agitator.

Journalists, attorneys, litigants, and staff are all permitted unrestricted access to the courtroom following a formal introduction and production of identification cards.

Last month, the court issued a Practice Direction relocating the trial to CCT, which is thought to be huge and roomy enough to handle the massive crowds that regularly gather to watch the proceedings.

The Chief Judge of the Court, Justice John Tsoho, had supported a Practice Direction that forbade media coverage unless specifically allowed.

Newsmen, on the other hand, noticed that the strict requirements had been dropped.

Although the grounds for departing from the Practice Direction have not been revealed, it is believed that the Jabi Code of Conduct Tribunal was deemed too permeable for such a sensitive trial, particularly in terms of security.

Apart from unhindered access being granted to lawyers and media practitioners, roads leading to the court are not blocked, while food vendors are also having their businesses done without molestation.

However, adequate security measures are being observed to prevent security breaches.
