Security agents have arrested activist-cum-politician, Omoyele Sowore at the Federal High Court, Abuja, where IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu is being tried.

 

Sowore was holding a Facebook Live session inside the court premises when he was picked up, The Inside Arewa report.

Recall that the Department of State Services (DSS) had cordoned off the court premises ahead of Kanu’s appearance before Justice Binta Nyako.

Earlier in the day, security agents clashed with the supporters of Kanu that stormed the court to witness his trial.

DSS operatives also barred many journalists and media organisations from accessing the premises on the grounds that they were not accredited to cover the proceedings.

Barred alongside Sowore’s Sahara Reporters were popular media organisations like The Punch, The Guardian, Vanguard, Daily Trust, Tribune and Daily Sun.

 

Only 10 media organisations were accredited to cover the resumed trial on Monday.

 

The secret police did not give any reasons for its decision.
